United States’ international striker Alex Morgan is taking her talents to England. According to multiple reports, Morgan is set to join Tottenham Hotspur on loan.
Morgan, who is under contract with Orlando Pride, will be at Tottenham until the end of the year. If two sides agree, the loan can be extended until the next summer when FA Women’s Super League 2020/21 season ends.
Tottenham, who will be playing its first season in Super League this year, previously acquired two more players from Orlando. Australian midfielder Alanna Kennedy and Canadian defender Shelina Zadorsky both came on loan in August after not being able to play for their parent team due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Alex Morgan is heading to her second playing stint in Europe. The 31-year-old USWNT star played for Lyon in 2017, making eight appearances for the club and scoring five goals.
Although she hasn’t been quite productive for Orlando in recent years, Morgan has been in stellar form for the national team. She was especially impressed in 2018 when she scored 18 times in 19 games. Overall, Morgan has scored 107 goals in 169 games with USWNT.
