The 23-year-old’s planned departure from Manchester City was announced last month, and her destination has now been confirmed.

“The opportunity to work under Jonatan, one of the world’s best coaches, is really exciting, and I look forward to learning from him and pushing myself to become the best player I can be, hopefully helping the team to success,” Morgan said.

According to the reports, Manchester City will receive a transfer fee for the transfer, and Morgan will be eligible to join the Spirit squad on July 15.
