Crystal Palace Women have completed the signing of Coral-Jade Haines from Women’s Super League side Tottenham Hotspur.
Haines becomes the second signing from north London this summer as goalkeeper Chloe Morgan has also linked up with Dean Davenport’s side.
Haines can play either as a midfielder or as a striker and has played senior football since the age of 16 after making her debut for Birmingham City.
During her time at the Blues she was part of the squad that reached the UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-finals.
Last season at Tottenham she found game-time hard to come by playing just three Women’s Super League games starting two of those.

“The coaches have implemented a learning environment - their attention to the technical detail is the best I have experienced for a long time.
“I’ve learnt a few things already and I can’t wait to add more to my game and hopefully help the club have a successful year.”
At just 24, it is remarkable the amount of experience Coral-Jade already has and arriving with Champions League appearances under her belt will inspire the squad with similar aspirations.
“The early signs in training are good; she has slotted in well. Her versatility in midfield and up top will be hugely beneficial to us.”
