USWNT captain Carli Lloyd signs with Manchester City

Two-time FIFA Player of the Year and USA national team star Carli Lloyd is set to sign a short-term contract to play with Manchester City in the FA Women's Super League, sources confirmed to ESPN FC.

"I'm incredibly excited to be joining Manchester City, a club which is leading the development of women's football both on and off the pitch", Carli Lloyd, 34, said in a February 15 statement that confirmed the signing, according to Goal.

Lloyd will wear her usual number 10 shirt for City and will begin training with her new reigning Women's Super League champion teammates next month.

"This is a unique opportunity and I couldn't be prouder to be part of the club here in Manchester".

The storm came a day after temperatures soared into the 50s and 60s, giving millions of people a taste of spring. A third storm is predicted to hit the same region Wednesday night but will not be as strong as its predecessors.

She solidified her reputation as a clutch player with three goals in the first 16 minutes of the US national team's 2015 Women's World Cup final victory over Japan.

Man City Women are entering this season after winning the Women's Super League Title and FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup.

The relentless drive and determination of the two-time FIFA Player of the Year won't allow that to happen.

She will remain in Manchester until the end of the Spring Series - a shortened version of the English season ahead of Euro 2017 and the subsequent transition to a winter/spring calendar. "I am excited about this team and look forward to working with the talented group that I'll go into camp with".

Dubai, which already has a driverless metro system, is trying to meet a lofty goal of alleviating congestion in the city. It has a seat that appears to be out of a race auto and destinations are chosen from the touchpad screen of the craft.

Lloyd, who has represented US 232 times, has scored 96 global goals throughout her career, three of which famously came in USA's 5-2 win against Japan in the 2015 World Cup final. Lloyd is the third American player to move to England in recent months, with Crystal Dunn joining Chelsea Ladies and midfielder Heather O'Reilly at Arsenal.

"It is another challenge for me, to be able to come over here, train with some of the world's best players, be at the world's best facility, playing in the Champions League and hopefully win an FA Cup and the Spring Series".

City would face either defending champions Lyon or last year's runners-up Wolfsburg in April's semi-finals if they overcome Fortuna Hjorring in the last eight.
