Scotland international has come back for a second spell with the north Londoners after first stint came to an end in 2013

Arsenal Women have made yet another summer signing as Scottish defender Jennifer Beattie makes a sensational return to north London.

Beattie made 83 appearances and scored 25 times during her first spell at the Gunners, before moving into Montpellier in 2013.

Her time with the club proved to be a successful one too, as she won the FA Women's Super League (2012, 2013), the FA WSL Continental Cup (2011, 2012, 2013) and SSE Women's FA Cup (2011, 2013).
