Abby Dahlkemper: A rock at the heart of defence

Manchester City are delighted to announce the signing of 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup winner Abby Dahlkemper.

A seasoned professional and a key figure for the United States, the defender joins the Club on a two-and-a-half year contract, making the switch to the FA Women’s Super League after four seasons with North Carolina Courage in the NWSL.


Following in the footsteps of compatriots Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle, she becomes the third American international to join the team’s ranks this season.

Defender Dahlkemper has penned a deal until the summer of 2023 and will wear the number 13 shirt.

The centre-half, who started every game of the USWNT's 2019 World Cup success, also played the most minutes of any outfield player during the tournament in France, featuring in 622 of a possible 630 minutes as they lifted the prestigious trophy.
