The move gives Mewis the opportunity to train and play at a high level, given the uncertainty over soccer in the US because of coronavirus.

The 27-year-old has 67 caps for the USA and was part of the squad who successfully defended the World Cup in France in 2019.

Mewis told the club’s website: “I’m so happy to have everything sorted. The opportunity came along at a really great time – as soon as I heard about the chance of coming to play for Manchester City, I was immediately interested.

“The club is one of the best in the world and I’ve heard such good things about the women’s side as a whole and the incredible facilities. I’ve followed the men’s team too for a long time.
