USA World Cup winner Alex Morgan is close to joining Tottenham Women on a short-term deal until the end of December.

Morgan most recently played for Orlando Pride in the National Women’s Soccer League. She would become the latest USA World Cup winner to join the WSL after Manchester City signed Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle, while Tobin Heath and Christen Press have arrived at Manchester United.

The 2019 silver ball winner Morgan scored a header in USA’s 2-1 defeat of England in last year’s World Cup semi-final and memorably pretended to drink tea as she celebrated with her team-mates. The 31-year-old gave birth to her daughter Charlie in May.

Since her national team debut in 2010, the striker has netted 107 times in 169 appearances, helping the US to victories in the 2015 and 2019 World Cups, as well as two CONCACAF Women’s Championships, and SheBelieves Cup wins in 2016 and 2018.
