Manchester City Women have signed PFA Young Player of the Year Lauren Hemp from Bristol City.

The promising 17-year-old scored nine goals during an impressive 2017-18 campaign in the Women's Super League.

Her Bristol City side finished eighth and she moves to the team that finished runners-up behind Chelsea and qualified for next season's Champions League.

"I'm very excited to be here," Hemp told ManCity.com. "It's a massive opportunity for me and I can't wait to get started.

"From a very young age, it's always been City and to have the opportunity to play here is a dream come true, especially so early in my career.
