Heath spent one season at United, scoring four goals as they finished one point below the Gunners in the Women's Super League.

The 33-year-old was an integral part to the USA's World Cup success both in 2015 and 2019, and has scored 31 goals and provided 41 assists across 177 senior national appearances.

The arrival of Heath would be another formidable boost to Jonas Eidevall's side's chances of winning the club's first league title since 2019 following the arrivals of Nikita Parris from Lyon, Mana Iwabuchi, Frida Maanum and Simone Boye Sorensen.
