The winger joins from Chelsea, having won the league and FA Cup double with the Blues last season.

Davison has a wealth of experience in the game, having spent time at Arsenal, Liverpool and taken in several spells in the highly competitive National Women's Soccer League in the USA.

Upon signing for the Royals, Davison said: “I was really impressed with Reading last year, having played against them twice I think they were by far the toughest team I came up against.

"That’s really something every player is striving for and to be a part of.” 

Manager Chambers added: “I had watched a lot of Sophie and she was someone I really wanted to bring into the squad.

"She is a player who has great attributes that fits into the way we play perfectly.”

The new Women's Super League season gets underway in September, with the fixtures for the season ahead due to be released in the coming weeks.
