Matt Beard’s side are currently preparing for the resumption of the Women’s Super League after the mid-season break due to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.
Speaking of her move to Liverpool, Rosie said: “I am absolutely delighted to be able to join Liverpool Ladies and experience the Women’s Super League.
“The prospect of moving to England has always been an attractive proposition to me, so to be able to join the reigning champions and play in the UEFA Women’s Champions League is extremely exciting.”
Reds manager, Matt Beard said: “I am really pleased that we have been able to secure the signing of Rosie as I have been keen to improve my striking options since the beginning of the mid-season break.
“I have watched Rosie for New Zealand a number of times and have always been impressed by her. Rosie will add something different in the final third for us and I am looking forward to working with her.”
