Devlin joined LCFC Women from Charlton Athletic in January 2020 and scored five goals at youth level for England, including one in the 2015 UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championships in Iceland.
She also earned several caps at Under-19s level and was part of the team that lifted the Women's International Cup in 2016, before being called up to the Under-21s squad in January 2019.
Devlin started her youth career at Millwall’s Centre of Excellence before moving to Arsenal at the age of 14, where she signed her first professional contract in June 2016.
After winning a league and cup double with the Gunners’ Development Team in 2015/16, a loan move back to Millwall followed as the midfielder took part in the 2017 WSL Spring Series, scoring on debut.
The move was made permanent for the 2017/18 campaign and she was the club’s top goalscorer with nine goals, placing her fifth in the WSL 2 chart.
Newly-formed Manchester United signed the attacker ahead of 2018/19 and she made 21 appearances during the season as the Red Devils claimed the second tier title.
After spending the first half of 2019/20 at Charlton, she was signed by the Foxes, making her debut in January 2020.
With plenty of flair and skill, Devlin played a big role in several victories last season, including netting in the opening day 3-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers at Farley Way Stadium.
She also struck against Rovers in the Continental Tyres League Cup in November 2020 before netting a fine late winner for City in a 2-1 away success over Liverpool on 17 January, 2021.
In total, her three goals and eight assists across 25 matches in all competitions were a major factor in earning promotion to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and reaching the semi-finals of the Continental Tyres League Cup.
Signing a new two-year deal in June 2021, there is still plenty to come from Devlin.
