It always helps to see a familiar face when you move to a new club.
So when Caitlin Foord found out about our interest in Steph Catley, she just couldn't help herself.
"Caitlin has been sliding into my DMs for a little bit saying ‘Any updates? What’s going on? What’s the word?’, so she was excited when I told her that it’s finally done and she’s basically just been really helpful in starting to set up life over there in London," Catley told Arsenal.com.
"I’ve heard there is a few other Aussies that work in the group and in the staff too, so that’s exciting. The team is absolutely stacked, but I’ve played with Kim little before and she’s just one of the best in the world.
"I really enjoyed my time playing with her when I was a lot younger, so I’m excited to see where she’s at now and combine with her. Also, I’ve played with Jen Beattie before and she’s just world class. She’s one of my favourite centre backs to play alongside, so I’m really excited to play with her again.
"This will be my first taste of European football and there’s so much to look forward to and so many big occasions to come, so I can’t wait to get started."
