Wales internationals Angharad James and Lily Woodham have joined Seattle Reign in the United States.

The pair have signed for undisclosed fees on two-year deals.

Both players made the switch before the Women's Super League and Championship January transfer windows closed at 23:00 GMT.

They will link up with Wales' most-capped player Jess Fishlock, who has played for Seattle since 2013.

James, 29, did not train with the Tottenham squad on Saturday and was left out of Sunday's defeat by Manchester City to complete the move.

She has previously played for North Carolina Courage and Orlando Pride.

Woodham leaves Reading after six years, having previously played for Bristol City and a loan spell at Charlton Athletic.

The 23-year-old defender, a regular starter for Wales, established herself as an important player at Reading, who are currently ninth in the Championship.

"I'm thrilled and grateful to be joining Seattle Reign FC," said Woodham.

"This club has a history filled with success and I'm eager to contribute to the team as much as possible."
