Manchester City have confirmed the signing of England international Lucy Bronze from Lyon.
The 28-year old returns to the club she left in 2017 after winning back-to-back-to-back Champions League crowns with the French champions.
The versatile full-back, who was named Uefa Women’s Player of the Year in 2019, has signed a two-year-deal.
“I’m really happy to be back here at City," she said upon her return. "I always had it in my mind that I would return one day, and it just feels like the perfect time and opportunity right now.
“I really enjoyed my time in France, but there were so many things that I missed and it’s great to be back.
“I feel like I’m returning as a better leader and person, who is capable of bringing similar success to the table here in England – both domestically with City and internationally too.
“Having already experienced everything that City have to offer as a Club, it was a no-brainer for me when the offer came in and there isn’t another team in England that I would have looked at.
“There’s nowhere I’d rather be right now than with Manchester City and I’m really excited to see what the future holds with the exciting squad we have here.”
