Alex Morgan is taking her talent across the pond. Morgan signed a short-term contract with Tottenham Hotspur, and will play in the FA Women's Super League.

Spurs announced the signing Saturday. Morgan, 31, also confirmed the news on Twitter.

The Athletic’s Meg Linehan and Paul Tenorio broke the initial news on Friday.

Morgan gave birth to her daughter Charlie in early May. By then the Olympics had been postponed, and she had reportedly been aiming to participate after her pregnancy.

Her NWSL team, the Orlando Pride, pulled out of the Challenge Cup in June due to 10 positive coronavirus tests. The Pride will begin play in the league’s Fall Series on Sept. 19.
