Olympique Lyonnais have signed Lionesses forward Jodie Taylor from OL Reign on a short-term deal until the end of 2020.

The 34-year-old told “I’m very happy to join OL and can’t wait to play with my new team.

“I just finished my season with OL Reign in the United States but I kind of stay in the same family!

“I talked a lot with my English teammates like Lucy Bronze who has been at the club for a long time, and I couldn’t refuse the opportunity to play for one of the best teams in the world.”

Lyon continue the defence of their UWCL title in the delayed quarter-finals of the 2019-20 competition later this month.
