Spurs snap up Norwiegian stopper Mikalsen

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR has signed talented Norwegian goalkeeper, Aurora Mikalsen, from Manchester United.

The 24-year-old found opportunities difficult to come by in the North-West, making a single FA Women’s League Cup appearance for United following her move from Kolbotn IL in July 2019.

The Kristiansund-born stopper has represented Norway at several youth levels as well as being called into the senior squad. Speaking to www.tottenhamhotspur.com about the move, Mikalsen said: “Coming to Spurs is an exciting challenge for me and I am really looking forward to the season ahead.

“There’s a good atmosphere at the Club and I can’t wait to get back out there with my new team-mates.

“I think the qualities I have as a goalkeeper fit well with the way Karen and Juan want our playing style to be and I’m hoping I can continue to build my skill set.”
