City are delighted to announce Swedish international Julia Spetsmark will join the Club in January.

The 28-year-old will make the move from Damallsvenskan outfit KIF Örebro DFF until the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

The attacking midfielder has always plied her trade in her homeland but makes the switch to the domestic treble holders, having always wished to play in England.

Eager to kick off a new chapter in her career, Spetsmark added she is even excited to play in the rain!

“I’m so excited to be here,” she told ManCity.com. “It feels great.

“It’s kind of a dream actually. I’ve only heard great things about this Club – the setting, great players. It’s a big club.

“I know some [things about the Club]. I’ve spoken to Kosse (former City player Kosovare Asllani) and she’s only had good things to say about the Club.

“I’ve always wanted to play in England, since I was a little kid. I’ve been waiting for the chance to play here so I’m really excited about that.

“Besides the soccer – or football as I’ve been told it’s called! – I’ve been told it’s raining a lot here and I love to play in rain!

“I haven’t left Sweden before but I feel ready. I have played in the Champions League and that was amazing.

“I wanted to go somewhere else and play and improve my game.”
