Melbourne City brought Noor Eckhoff as an attempt to bounce back from their shocking start to the season.

Since the start of the

W-League

season,

Melbourne City

have drawn once and lost two games, including a 6-0 derby against

Melbourne Victory

.

Now in order to bounce back from their shocking start, the club signed Norwegian midfielder

Noor Eckhofff

, who previously has spent three years in the Norwegian Toppserien competition.

"The opportunity to go abroad and play at the highest level in a league that is highly rated was very appealing to me," Eckhoff said.

"... I hope to add more power in the midfield and make sure our team stays compact in defense and in balance when attacking."

City football director

Michael Petrillo

said:

”As our last signing for this campaign, Noor will add experience and aggressiveness to our midfield.

"She is a Norwegian youth international, experienced in a top European competition, technically adept, and is a proven winner."

Eckhoff cannot make it to Sunday’s derby rematch as she is in hotel quarantine in Perth until January 20.
