Arsenal Ladies have confirmed the re-signing of England forward Gemma Davison.

Gemma follows Kelly Smith and Alex Scott in returning to the Gunners from the United States, following the breakdown of the Women’s Professional Soccer League 2012 season.

The 24-year-old England international helped lead Western New York Flash to the league title in 2011 with 12 appearances and one goal, before taking in a brief stint with the New Jersey outfit Sky Blue FC this year.

She returns to Arsenal Ladies for a fourth spell, having first joined the Club’s Centre of Excellence as a teenager and will be looking to build on a record of 19 goals in 44 appearances for Laura Harvey’s side.

Vic Akers said: “We’re delighted to welcome Gemma back to the Club. She will bring an additional attacking threat to the team and great experience from her time in the US - her return is a great boost to the whole squad.

"Last season’s treble was a tremendous achievement for the team, and we are confident that with the re-signings of Kelly Smith, Alex Scott and now Gemma, we are in a good position to  challenge on all fronts again this season.”

Gemma will be available for selection for this afternoon’s Champions League quarter final match with Swedish side Gothenburg at Meadow Park.
