American international and World Cup winner Sam Mewis joined City in August 2020.
The 27-year-old – a key figure in the USWNT’s 2019 World Cup triumph – made the move from Manchester from National Women’s Soccer League outfit North Carolina Courage.
Originating from a footballing family in Massachusetts - with her sister Kristie also playing professionally at Houston Dash - Mewis started out with UCLA Bruins where she won the National Championship as well as National Player of the Year honours.
In 2016 meanwhile, she won the NWSL Championship with Western New York Flash and at the start of 2017, linked up with North Carolina Courage and secured a further two league titles and three NWSL Shields in three years.
She was also named in the NWSL’s Best XI in her first year at Sahlen’s Stadium.
On the international scene, Mewis figured for the United States at numerous youth levels, winning the CONCACAF U20 Women’s Championship and FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in 2012, before moving into the senior set-up in 2014.
Quickly becoming a key figure for the USWNT, the midfielder has helped the team to success in the She Believes tournament (2016 and 2020), Tournament of Nations (2018), CONCACAF Women’s Championship (2018) and most recently, the FIFA Women’s World Cup last summer.
And ahead of the upcoming 2020/21 Barclays FA Women’s Super League season, Mewis will link up with Manchester City for her first foray into the English game.
