Alanna Kennedy signs for Manchester City. The Australian player has decided to join the Citizens after a good showing on the Olympics in Tokyo earlier this month.

A good and dynamic player who is also capable of playing in midfield, the 26-year-old has spent the majority of her career so far in her native Australia with the likes of Sydney FC, Newcastle Jets and Perth Glory alongside stints in America with Western New York Flash and Orlando Pride.

She joins as City mount a vey strong team chasing the FAWSL title and UWCL.

She spoke about the move-

“I’m super excited – it’s an amazing Club, and I’m just honoured to be a part of it.

“Obviously Manchester City as a whole is amazing and they’re known across the globe, but also I think just the style of football that’s played here will suit me personally.

“I want to help the team any way that I can, but what attracted me to it mostly is just the brand of football that they play here as it’s incredible to watch.”

Welcome, Alanna!
