Alex Morgan is to return to the United States in the new year after spending the first half of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League season with Tottenham Hotspur.

The USA striker with over 100 goals for her country, made five appearances for Spurs after her short-term move from Orlando Pride, scoring twice in the WSL.

Spurs’ Head of Women’s Football Heather Cowan told tottenhamhotspur.com: “We were delighted at the start of the season when Alex chose us as her club to help regain fitness and take her first steps back into competitive football after giving birth earlier this year.

“It has been a pleasure to have Alex with us during this period and the whole squad has taken a lot from working every day with someone at the top of the women’s game.”

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

“From the moment I arrived in London, I realised I was part of a first-class organisation, one that helped provide me the opportunity to immerse myself back into the game I love.

“Thank you to everyone who helped make this chapter in my soccer journey so special.”
