French international defender joins West Ham United

West Ham United have completed the signing of French international Hawa Cissoko ahead of the new Barclays FA Women’s Super League campaign.

The 23-year-old Paris-born defender joins The Hammers from French club ASJ Soyaux-Charente where she has spent the last two years of her career.

West Ham United announced the move on their official website earlier today with Cissoko becoming manager Matt Beard’s fourth signing of the summer so far.

Cissoko has spent her entire career to date playing in her homeland. The defender began her career in the city of her birth with Paris Saint-Germain where she came through the youth system before finding first team opportunities more difficult to come by.

In 2017, Cissoko moved to Marseille where she enjoyed more first team minutes before joining latest club ASJ Soyaux-Charente the following summer. The defender’s time with John Paredes’ side saw her become a hugely dependable member of the squad. Cissoko has featured in all-but-one of ASJ Soyaux-Charente’s fixtures in the Division 1 Feminine in her two seasons with the club.

The full-back joins Australian international goalkeeper Mackenzie Arnold, fellow full-back Maz Pacheco and Czech Republic international midfielder Katherina Svitkova in moving to Rush Green in the current transfer window.
