Manchester City Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Swedish international Filippa Angeldahl on a two-year deal with an option of a further year, subject to international clearance.

The Uppsala-born midfielder joins from Swedish champions BK Häcken in her homeland, the Gothenburg-based club who absorbed City’s 2020-21 UEFA Women’s Champions League Round of 32 opponents Göteborg FC late last year.

The 24-year-old has spent the entirety of her career so far playing in her native Sweden for Vaksala SK, IK Sirius, AIK, Hammarby – where she was awarded the Damallsvenskan Most Valuable Player accolade in 2017 - and Linköpings FC.

On the international stage, she has represented Sweden at senior level since 2018, boasting 15 caps so far including six at the recent Tokyo Olympic Games where she helped The Blue & Yellow to a silver medal, playing 75 minutes in the showpiece final against Canada.

Fresh from her Tokyo adventure, Angeldahl has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with an option of an additional year at the Academy Stadium.

Speaking about her move, she said: “I am very excited to join Manchester City. It’s a huge club and I can’t wait to start working with the team.

“For me, I feel like now is the right moment to take the next step in my career and I feel like City are the best choice for me to do that.

“As a player, I always want to win and that is why I chose this Club as they match my ambitions.”

Head Coach Gareth Taylor added: “We’re delighted to have added Filippa to our squad ahead of the start of the new league campaign - she is a talented player and will fit into our style of play well.

“We were impressed by her when she played against us in the Champions League last season and we’re now excited to work with her over the next few years.”
