IRISH INTERNATIONAL LOUISE Quinn has joined Arsenal after the Notts County Ladies team folded.

The 26-year-old defender who has won 47 caps for her country was left with an uncertain future after her previous club, who she only signed for in February, went out of existence following financial problems, just two days before they were due to start their Spring Series campaign.

“Some of the houses that we live in, they’re owned by the club, we’re not sure how long we can actually stay for. We don’t know when we’ll be asked to leave the houses. It’s a massive shock,” Quinn told The42 following the news last month.

However, after it was announced by the FA last week that Notts County players would be free to join other English teams outside of the transfer window “given the exceptional circumstances,” Quinn took little time to join Arsenal Ladies.

And the Blessington native has already made her debut for the Gunners, coming on in the final five minutes of the side’s 0-0 draw with Sunderland on Sunday.

On Twitter, Quinn added that she was “very happy” to have made the move.

She joins fellow Irish international Katie McCabe at the club.
