The 25-year-old defender, who has represented AZ Alkmaar, Telstar, Twente, Bayern Munich and Ajax, moved to Barcelona earlier this week.

van der Gragt said, ”When such a fantastic club comes in for you it really is a dream come true.

”I did not expect the transfer when FC Barcelona Ladies contacted me.

”I am delighted to pair up again with Lieke Martens again. We get on really well and she will be able to help me especially in terms of the language in Spain. I am looking forward to learning Spanish.

”I also believe for Lieke Martens that she will enjoy having an international compatriot at the club as she is currently the only Dutch player at FC Barcelona Ladies.”
