Van Den Berg started for Liverpool in the 1-0 win at Reading in September.

Opinion: Is the capture of Van Den Berg the sign of a positive winter?

In a released statement, Reading manager Kelly Chambers said: “Firstly it’s great that we are attracting players of Mandy’s calibre to the club. It shows what a good season we have just had, but also that the club is going in the right direction.

“I am really excited to bring Mandy on board here, she joined the WSL last season and has great international experience but is still wanting to learn and develop as a player.
