Spurs bring in World Cup winner Morgan

Tottenham Hotspur has reached an agreement to sign experience USA international Alex Morgan.

A prolific goalscorer, the 31-year-old has found the net 107 times whilst winning 169 caps. She has played a pivotal role in two FIFA Women’s World Cup successes as well as an Olympic gold medal and a string of domestic trophies during a glittering career with Western New York Flash, Seattle Sounders, Portland Thorns, Orlando Pride and Olympique Lyonnais.

Individually, Morgan has also proved to be a global success in the women’s game, collecting an ESPY award for Best Female Athlete in 2019, two-time US Soccer Athlete of the Year and four-time CONCACAF Player of the Year.

The San Dimas, California-born forward has also made it into the FIFPro World 11 in 2016, 2017 and 2019, was named in the USWNT All-Time Best XI in 2013 and finished third at the Ballon d’Or awards in 2019.
