Club career[edit]

Arsenal[edit]

Dean came through the academy at Arsenal, scoring 37 goals in 20 games in the 2016/17 season with the Development Squad before confirming she was to leave at the end of the campaign in order to seek first team football.[1] She made one senior appearance for the club, making her professional debut on 29 July 2015 in a WSL Cup Group Stage victory over London Bees.[2] Arsenal would go on to lift the trophy.[3]

Millwall Lionesses[edit]

In July 2017, Dean joined Millwall on a one-year contract.[4] She led the team in goals, scoring 10 across all competitions.

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

Upon the conclusion of her year at Millwall, Dean moved to Tottenham Hotspur for the 2018–19 season.[5] After scoring six goals in three games, including a hat-trick against her former club, Millwall, Dean was voted FA Women's Championship October Player of the Month.[6] She finished the season as the Championship's joint second highest scorer behind only Jessica Sigsworth of Manchester United as Tottenham won promotion to the FA WSL. Dean was one of 11 players retained by the club ahead of their debut season as a top flight professional team.[7] She was released at the end of the 2020–21 season having not scored during her final campaign with the team.[8]

On 9 July 2021, Dean signed for Liverpool in the FA Women's Championship.[9]
