Tottenham Women have announced they have signed Alex Morgan.
The 31-year-old striker will join the north London side from the NWSL's Orlando Pride on a one-year contract once a visa is granted. She will wear the No. 13 shirt.
Morgan has enjoyed a glittering career and become one of the most iconic figures in the women's game, having amassed 169 caps and scored 107 goals for the United States national team.
After winning a gold medal at the Olympics in London in 2012, she went on to lift two World Cup crowns with the USWNT in 2015 and 2019. She also claimed two CONCACAF Women's Championship titles.
Morgan spent four years with Orlando, though she spent the 2016-17 campaign on loan at French powerhouse Lyon, where she won the domestic league and cup as well as the Champions League.
She has collected a host of individual accolades over the years, too, having been named CONCACAF Player of the Year four times and U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year in 2012 and 2018.
A finalist in the FIFA The Best awards in 2019, Morgan gave birth to her first child, daughter Charlie Elena Carrasco, in May this year.
She follows four of her USWNT teammates in making the switch to the English league, with Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis joining Manchester City and Christen Press and Tobin Heath making the move to Manchester United. Meanwhile, two of her Orlando Pride teammates, Shelina Zadorsky and Alanna Kennedy, are already on loan at Spurs.
Tottenham started its Women's Super League campaign with a 1-1 draw against West Ham last week and is in action again on Sunday when it visits Everton. Spurs are also through to the FA Cup quarterfinals, with a clash against London rival Arsenal scheduled for Sept. 26.
The north London side finished seventh in the table last season, sitting 19 points behind champions Chelsea when the campaign was ended prematurely because of the coronavirus pandemic.
