Daniëls makes Vixens switch

City Women have completed their first summer signing with the arrival of Belgian striker Yana Daniëls from Anderlecht.

The international star will arrive at the club after the conclusion of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 tournament.

Daniëls began her career at Oud-Heverlee Leuven in 2008, before joining Lierse SK in 2012.

She moved to FC Twente in 2014, scoring seven goals in 18 appearances, whilst also playing in the Champions League.

Daniëls returned to Belgium, to play for Anderlecht during the 2016/17 season.

The 25-year-old has represented Belgium at Under-17 and Under-19 level and now is a member of the full international squad, scoring four goals in 26 appearances to date.

Daniëls said: “I’m really looking forward to moving to Bristol and playing in WSL1.

“It has been an aspiration of mine for some time to play in England and test myself against some of the best players in the world.

“I’d like to thank Anderlecht for everything they have done for me and I wish the club all the best for the future.”

Head coach Willie Kirk is delighted with the capture of the Belgian international.

He commented: “Yana was brought to my attention after recently playing against Scotland in an International Challenge Match.  

“Her performance that night impressed me and following further analysis of her games, she was a player that I was really keen to bring to Bristol.

“Her style of play suits us and she is a big personality that will enhance the culture we already have at the club.”
