The 23-year-old arrives from Nashville Rhythm in the United States’ Women’s Premier Soccer League.

She has previous English top-flight experience with Bristol Academy.

Holloway adds flexibility to Marta Tejedor’s Blues squad, with an ability to play in central midfield, as a winger or full-back.

Her arrival follows a number of high-profile exits, with full-back Paige Williams failing to agree a new deal and defender Aoife Mannion leaving to join Manchester City, while England midfielder Lucy Staniforth has submitted a transfer request.

BBC Sport has launched #ChangeTheGame this summer to showcase female athletes in a way they never have been before. Through more live women’s sport available to watch across the BBC this summer, complemented by our journalism, we are aiming to turn up the volume on women’s sport and alter perceptions.
