USWNT World Cup winner Heath joins Man Utd
“Manchester United is an exceptional club and I’m thrilled to be joining them,” Heath said in a statement.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge of competing in England, playing with and against some of the best players in the world. I have big ambitions for this season and can’t wait to get on the pitch with my new team and start this next chapter.”
The 32-year-old Heath has never played in England before but did spend two brief stints in France with Paris Saint-Germain in 2013 and 2014.
Heath has 168 international caps and was shortlisted for the 2019 Ballon d’Or.
“We are all excited to have Tobin join the club; she is an outstanding player who brings a wealth of experience to the squad,” United head coach Casey Stoney said.
“She is extremely skilful and possesses so much quality on the ball; her speed and intelligence in one vs one situations will be a real asset that will push the team forward this season, and I can’t wait to see her make her mark on the league.
