England international left-back Alex Greenwood has joined Manchester City on a three-year deal according to reports on the club’s official website.
The 27-year-old Liverpudlian moves to The Academy Stadium on a free transfer after her contract at former club Lyon came to an end.
Greenwood becomes Manchester City head coach Gareth Taylor’s second defensive signing in as many days with the Barclays FA Women’s Super League club having re-acquired the services of right-back Lucy Bronze yesterday.
UEFA Women’s Champions League winner Greenwood joins City just a year on from leaving their bitter rivals Manchester United. The defender spent the 2018/2019 campaign with The Red Devils, helping the club win promotion to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League at the first attempt. Greenwood made 18 appearances for United as they romped to the 2018/2019 FA Women’s Championship title while she netted four goals.
During her year playing in France with European heavyweights Lyon, Greenwood made 15 appearances for the club in all competitions. She was a late substitute for Lyon in their latest UEFA Women’s Champions League final success against German side VfL Wolfsburg last month.
Greenwood will now be hoping for domestic and European glory with her latest club Manchester City with the player joining one of the most impressive squads in this season’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League.
