Katrine Veje

Denmark International, Katrine Vejsgaard Veje joined Everton in August 2022 from FC Rosengård on a two-year deal.

Born in Fredericia in Denmark, Veje started her career at Odense BK in 2007 where she won the Danish Football Association’s prize for Young Player of the Year in her first season.

The defender has gone on to have a decorated career spanning across the top-flight leagues in Denmark, Sweden, United States of America, France and England.

She is one of Denmark’s most-capped players, with more than 140 appearances for her nation.

A serial winner, Veje has won the Damallsvenskan (2011, 2013), Swedish Super Cup (2011, 2012), NWSL Shield (2015), Elitedivisionen (2015, 2017) and the Danish Women’s Super-Cup (2015, 2017).

In the 2018/19 season, she became a Barclays Women’s Super League champion with Arsenal playing a key role in their title charge.

A popular member within the Everton squad, Veje’s influence has spread across the team with her top-level experience being a key factor in improving the youth within the Blues side.

Her first season for the Club was disrupted through injury, but she was still able to make 14 appearances and helped the Blues earn four clean sheets.
