The 29-year-old, who can feature as a midfielder and a striker, ended her six-year stay in Spain after her contract with Sevilla expired, while Super Eagles winger Chidera Ejuke joined up with the club’s men’s side.

Payne, alongside Spain midfielder, Inma Gabarro, will be free agents from the start of next month after spending the last five years as teammates at club level.

According to The Guardian, WSL Club – Everton Women, are on the verge of signing the former Sevilla duo as they look to reinforce their team ahead of the 2024/2025 season.
