Reading Women have signed striker Danielle Carter and defender Emma Mitchell after they left Arsenal.
England international Carter, 27, departed the Gunners in June after 11 years with them.
The striker netted the winner in the 2016 Women’s FA Cup final against Chelsea but serious knee injuries have disrupted her past two seasons.
Mitchell, also 27, spent seven years at Reading's fellow WSL side Arsenal and has won 62 caps for Scotland.
The length of their contracts has not been disclosed.
