​DONE DEAL: Man City Women swoop for USA skipper Lloyd

Manchester City Women have secured the signature of USA captain Carli Lloyd.

She will turn out for City in the 2017 Spring Series, FA Women's Cup and UEFA Women's Champions League campaign.

"I'm incredibly excited to be joining Manchester City, a club which is leading the development of women's football both on and off the pitch.

"Having played in the US throughout my career, the chance to fulfil a long held ambition to test myself in a new footballing environment, as well as playing in the Champions League, is something I am relishing.

"With the challenge of the Spring Series and the FA Women's Cup ahead of us too, I really can't wait to pull on my City shirt in front of our fans and make them proud."

Head coach Nick Cushing thinks the signing of Lloyd will boost the side: "Carli has had an incredible career and is recognised as one of the best in the world.

"There is much we can learn from her that will help us to improve as a team. We are all looking forward to working with her over the coming months."
