American striker Morgan ends loan spell at Spurs to return to the U.S.

United States international and twice World Cup winner Alex Morgan has ended her loan spell at Tottenham Hotspur and will return to the U.S., the Women’s Super League (WSL) club said on Monday (December 21).

Morgan joined the north London club from Orlando Pride in a bid to regain match fitness following the birth of her child in May after the COVID-19 pandemic truncated the National Women’s Soccer League season this year.

The 31-year-old’s signing was seen as a coup for Spurs but the striker, who has scored 107 international goals, only made five appearances and scored twice in the WSL where the club sit eighth out of 12 teams in the standings.

“I will be forever grateful to the club, my team mates and Spurs supporters for taking such good care of me and my family,” Morgan said.

Spurs have struggled in the WSL this season, however, and the club sacked co-head coaches Karen Hills and Juan Amoros last month when they were second-bottom, with Rehanne Skinner taking over.

The club then earned their first wins of the season, with Morgan scoring both her goals under the former England assistant manager.

Morgan’s last appearance came in a 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Dec. 13 when she scored the opener from the penalty spot.
