It is not clear whether the double World Cup champion will remain with Tottenham for the whole season.


's recently selected head manager

Rehanne Skinner

says the fate of

Alex Morgan

at the club will be talked about 'as soon as possible'.

The transient attention for Skinner is on this current end of the week's fixture when she will coach the team for the first time against Brighton, yet the eventual fate of Morgan will be tended to rapidly subsequently. 

“I have not been with the team for long but those are conversations that need to be had as soon as possible,” the head coach said, facing the media for the first time in her new role.

“But we have to get this game up and running this weekend and start the league in the right way.

“Then, we will assess where we are with Alex, look at the future and see what that looks like for her with the club moving forward.

“She is obviously a fantastic character to have in the environment with her experience and she is definitely moving in the right direction now.

“She got 45 minutes away with the U.S. national team recently and we are just hoping to build on getting her back on track with that.

“In the coming weeks we are hoping to increase minutes and get her into the form she is accustomed to being in, but it has been a long break that we have to manage and be aware of.

“She is definitely heading in the right direction and has looked good in training this week.”

Morgan joined Spurs in September but a knee injury took her until November to make her debut, her first game for a year her little girl Charlie was born in May, however, she has begun to develop herself ever since. 

Additionally, her previous Orlando Pride teammates

Alanna Kennedy


Shelina Zadorsky

are in the Spurs squad now, and the three of them offer plenty of skills and experience in the dressing room.

“They add value to what you're trying to achieve, because they know what that looks like,” Skinner said, speaking of those high-profile characters.

“They are there to support and help to bring the team along with you. It definitely works in your favour, having them in the environment.”
