The Tottenham forward will return to the United States to move back to Orlando Pride.

According to

Tottenham

,

Alex Morgan

, who has joined the club on a one-season contract, will fly back to his homeland in January. The United states international has been playing a key role for the Spurs, being one of the best female players.

However, the luck would not have it with the experienced striker as she had to struggle with a knee problem during her first few months which has led to a late debut. Based on her contract terms, she is permitted to rejoin

Orlando Pride

in 2021 as the National Women’s Soccer League is about to start in February.

Spurs’ Twitter read: “

We can confirm that Alex Morgan will be returning to the United States in the new year after the conclusion of the first half of the season

."

On Monday, Morgan gave a message to the club saying: “

I will be forever grateful to the club, my team-mates and Spurs supporters for taking such good care of me and my family.

“From the moment I arrived in London, I realised I was part of a first-class organisation, one that helped provide me the opportunity to immerse myself back into the game I love.

“Thank you to everyone who helped make this chapter in my soccer journey so special... COYS

.”

Heather Cowan

, the Spurs head of Women’s Football, praised the striker and showed her tribute for all her contributions, and wished her luck in all her future endeavors.

We were delighted at the start of the season when Alex chose us as her club to help regain fitness and take her first steps back into competitive football after giving birth earlier this year,

" said Cowan.

It has been a pleasure to have Alex with us during this period and the whole squad has taken a lot from working every day with someone at the top of the women's game.

“We wish Alex all the best for the future both at club and international level as she prepares to return back home with her family. She will always be welcome here at Spurs.”
