Liverpool have signed a former Albion defender – backed by factor Sami Hyypia.
Emma Koivisto is expected to represent Finland against Spain at Euro 2022 tomorrow.
She split from the Seagulls last week after 18 months at the club when her contract expired.
Albion faces a busy summer of player movement, both in and out, as they prepare for the upcoming WSL season, and Koivisto is a significant departure.
Koivisto said: “Me and my brother used to be big Liverpool fans growing up because Sami Hyypia, a Finnish legend, played for the club when we were kids.
“Everyone knows Liverpool. It feels like family. I am very happy to join this club.”
Hyypia played in Liverpool defence, and was Albion boss in 2014.
Former Albion player Nora Heroum is also in Finland’s squad for the European Championship.
