Rose Lavelle: City's newest shining star

Another World Cup winner will be featuring for City next season.

United States star and 2019 World Champion Rose Lavelle will be playing in sky Blue next term.

A vital figure for the United States national team since 2017, the midfielder makes the move to the Academy Stadium after four seasons in the National Women's Soccer League, following in the footsteps of international teammate Sam Mewis who joined the Club earlier this month.

Fast approaching a half century of caps for her country and boasting 12 goals from midfield, Lavelle is one of the team’s brightest stars.


Last summer, she won the Bronze Ball at the World Cup in France and scored in the 2-0 Final victory over the Netherlands, as the Stars and Stripes clinched the trophy for the fourth time.

Ahead of the upcoming 2020/21 Barclays FA Women’s Super League season, Lavelle has put pen to paper with City and will wear the number 21 shirt.
