Rianna Jarrett has signed for FA Women's Super League side Brighton & Hove Albion until the end of the 2019-2020 season.

The Ireland striker has spent the last nine years at Wexford Youths and finished her career with the south-east side on a high by securing the FAI Cup in November, while the 25-year-old was also named player of the year last season.

Jarrett is a key member of Vera Pauw's Ireland side, who are currently attempting to qualify for the 2021 European championships, and are unbeaten after three games of the campaign.

Brighton manager Hope Powell said: "It is great news that we have managed to bring Rianna to the club, as she is someone who will bolster our forward options.

"We have kept a close eye on her progress in Ireland, and I know she was very keen to come over to England and prove herself in the Women's Super League.

"We are all very much looking forward to seeing how she progresses in the months ahead, and cannot wait to start working with her."

Brighton are awaiting international clearance before finalising the six-month contract.

Fellow Ireland international Megan Connolly also plays for the English south-coast club having signed for Brighton in January 2019.
