The 31-year-old spent six seasons with Arsenal between 2008 and 2014, winning four league titles, four FA Cups, three WSL Cups and a Premier League Cup.

She won the domestic treble in her first season with the club.

An Irish international defensive midfielder, Fahey left Arsenal and joined Chelsea where she made 28 appearances before moving on to Bordeaux.

A season there and 16 appearances was followed by a move to Liverpool in 2018 where she has now been made vice-captain.

“I feel very proud being named vice-captain, it is a big honour for me as a Liverpool supporter playing for the club,” Fahey said.

“I’m really excited to get the new season under way and to build off the back of last season’s strong run-in. Having a full pre-season with the full squad and new faces will stand us in good stead and everyone is looking forward to getting started.”
