Kyah Simon: Tottenham sign Australia international forward ahead of new Women’s Super League season | Football News

Tottenham have signed Australia international Kyah Simon ahead of the new Women’s Super League season.

The 30-year-old forward has agreed to join Spurs on a two-year deal after leaving Dutch club PSV earlier this summer.

Simon has scored 26 goals in 100 games for Australia and was part of the squad that finished fourth at the Tokyo Olympic Games, after knocking out Great Britain in the quarter-finals.

“I’m really excited to join Spurs, an incredible, historic club that is known around the world,” said Simon, who has also had previous spells at Sydney FC, Boston Breakers, Melbourne City and Houston Dash.

“Playing in the WSL has always been a dream of mine and I’m so happy to be joining such a big club.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity and a good challenge for me. The club is making strides on and off the pitch and I’m looking forward to meeting the team and helping them achieve success next season.”

“Kyah is a hard-working and tenacious player that has a proven ability to create and score goals in key moments of big games, this gives an idea of the type of experience, resilience and character she brings.

“Her recent performances and impact in games for Australia at the Olympics have been excellent and we can’t wait to welcome her to the Spurs family on her return from Tokyo.”
