“I’m really pleased to be back in the Women’s Super League again and can’t wait to get started. 

“I respect Olli a lot as a coach, he’s a good guy and works incredibly hard. I just want to play for him, so I’m looking forward to creating some new memories and hopefully bringing some success to the club.” 

Meanwhile, Harder added: “Zaneta is somebody that will bring a lot of experience and technical quality to the team.

“She’s played in a number of countries across the world and somebody who I’ve worked with before. I know that she will bring a lot of positive energy to the team. 

“She is somebody that we believe will represent the football club in the best possible manner.”
