Alex Morgan Joins Tottenham For 2020-21 Season

Sep 12, 2020 3:10 PM

Alex Morgan has joined Tottenham from the Orlando Pride for the 2020-21 season.

The contract will run through the rest of this year, with an option to remain until May.

Morgan has not played since giving birth to her daughter in May.

"Returning to play has been a long time coming for Alex and, as a player that is looking to not only get back to match fitness but also compete for an Olympic roster spot, the additional months of games and training beyond the NWSL's Oct. 17 end date is right for her," said Pride coach Marc Skinner.

Aubameyang was entering the final season of his deal and was set to receive interest from Inter Milan and Barcelona. 

Arsenal believe Aubameyang can defy the age curve at 31.
