American topflight side Seattle Reign FC have secured the services of Ghana women’s national team skipper Elizabeth Addo.
The forward had sealed a deal with Boston Breakers after ending her two-year stay at Swedish side Kvarnsveden who suffered relegation at the end of the 2017 season.
However, the National Women Soccer League (NWSL) club went into administration and had to be dissolved.
Elizabeth Addo was among 36 players who were put out in a dispersal draft on Tuesday.
Addo was a surprise name on the list of eligible players for the draft since her signing was finalized but had not been publicly announced by Boston prior to their ownership crisis.
For the past two years, she played for Kvarnsvendens IK in the Swedish Damallsvenskan, making 29 appearances and scoring 7 goals. Prior to that she played in Hungary, Serbia, and Nigeria. She has 25 caps for the Ghana National Team, with 10 goals scored.
The Black Queens’ skipper turned down an offer from reigning Swedish champions Linköping in order to move to arguably the most competitive women’s league, the NWSL, ahead of a busy 2018.
Elizabeth Addo is expected to lead her native Ghana when they host the 2018 African Women’s Cup of Nations, which will double as the Caf qualifiers for the 2019 World Cup.
The 2018 NWSL kicks off with the regular season the weekend of March 24-25.
