Spurs Women sign two-time World Cup winning striker Morgan

Tottenham Hotspur Women have signed United States international and twice World Cup winner Alex Morgan on a season-long deal, the Women’s Super League (WSL) club said in a statement on Saturday (September 12).

Morgan, 31, joins the north London club from National Women’s Soccer League side Orlando Pride where she spent four seasons.

An Olympic gold medallist, Morgan has scored 107 goals and grabbed 43 assists in 169 games for the U.S. and won the World Cup in 2015 and 2019.

Morgan is the fifth high-profile U.S. international to join the WSL this season after Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis signed for Manchester City while Tobin Heath and Christen Press joined Manchester United.

American players have looked to the WSL in search of more game time after the NWSL season in the U.S. was truncated this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Morgan joins fellow Pride team mates Shelina Zadorsky and Alanna Kennedy, who also joined Spurs on loan in August.

Spurs drew 1-1 with West Ham United in their WSL season opener and next travel to Everton on Sunday.
