“I am so excited to join Manchester City. It’s a world-class club full of incredible players and I can’t wait to get started,"

Dahlkemper, who will take the No.13 shirt for her new club, said


"With all the talent in the WSL, I know that each game will present a new challenge and the opportunity to grow both as a player and as a person in England is going to be amazing, alongside having the chance to play Champions League football too.

“Sam and Rose have been saying nothing but brilliant things about the club and hearing them speak so highly about the facilities, the staff and the players as well as their experience of a new technical and tactical challenge is something that was really appealing to me.

“I just can’t wait to get over and help the team in whatever way I can and be successful on the field.”
