Central midfielder Jordan Nobbs, 17-years-old, has already enjoyed significant success since graduating from Sunderlands Centre of Excellence and later joining the senior ranks. Jordan helped Sunderland to Premier League promotion and to the FA Women's Cup Final in 2009.
On the international stage, she has won the European Championships with England U-19s and has captained the national side at U-15s, U-17s and U-19s level. Jordan goes to Arsenal fresh from being awarded the FA Young Player of The Year 2010.
Arsenal Ladies General Manager Vic Akers said: I have every confidence that Jordan will be a terrific addition to our team. Jordan is only 17-years-old, but has already shown huge potential, and Im confident that she will prove herself on the highest level, when the Champions League gets underway in September. I should say Jordans signing was possible only because of the excellent relationship we enjoy with Sunderland WFC, and I would like to thank their manager Mick Mulhern for all his help with this matter.
Manager Mick Mulhern said "Jordan's a top quality player and has had a fantastic season at Sunderland. Everyone at the club wishes Jordan the best of luck in her move to Arsenal Ladies FC."
