IRELAND INTERNATIONAL RUESHA Littlejohn has signed a deal with Birmingham City that will run until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old links up with the Blues following her departure from Leicester City, who she joined last year.

Littlejohn, who was born in Glasgow, has had stints with Arsenal, Liverpool, West Ham United and London Bees during her career.

Littlejohn represented Scotland at U19 level before going on to play for the Republic of Ireland as a full international after declaring for the Girls in Green in 2012.

She impressed for Vera Pauw’s Ireland before the Covid-19 shutdown, earning the Player of the Match award in their Euro qualifier win over Greece last March having not been involved in the set-up since 2018.

Littlejohn continued to be a key player for the rest of Ireland’s qualifying campaign that ended in disappointment last December when they bowed out to Germany.
