The 17 year old defender will play at the Hornets until the end of the 2021/22 campaign, as part of a dual registration agreement between the two clubs.

The new addition will bring leadership qualities to the Hornets; she is an England Under-19 international and captain of the side.

Goldie made her debut at just 16, playing a part in the Gunners 10-0 win over Gillingham in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup.

She would go on to make further appearances in the competition, including in the semi-final versus Brighton & Hove Albion. Goldie was also a part of the Gunners’ squad for the final defeat against Chelsea back at Wembley in December.

In total, she has made six appearances for the north London side and has been a regular in match-day squads this season.

The defender will wear number 23 and was eligible to make her debut against Blackburn Rovers at the weekend.

Goldie has turned into Watford’s second signing of the transfer window.

She joins Anna Patten, goalkeeper Natalia Negri and midfielder Halle Houssein in leaving the club on loan in January to further their development.
