OL Reign have announced the signing ofEngland goalkeeper Karen Bardsley on loan from Manchester City.

Bardsley brings plenty of experience for club and country, having been capped81 times by England.

“I am really excited to be joining OL Reign over this period and very grateful to Man City for allowing me the opportunity to experience a new environment to get more game time and progress my learning and development,” Bardsley told OL Reign's official website.

“I’ve been very impressed with the whole approach and attitude of everyone at OL Reign and I can’t wait to meet up with the squad and coaches. NWSL is such a competitive league, and I’m determined to do all I can to help the club get the season off to a winning start.”

Head coachFarid Benstiti added:“Karen is a player with very big experience. She has played in many important games and knows what it takes to win big matches.

“Our goalkeeping situation is complicated this year. We have started with Cosette Morche, a young goalkeeper with so much great potential. And now we add Karen, who will be ready to play immediately.

"We have another keeper already signed that will join mid-season, and when Karen departs in June, we will have another top player to replace her. It is complicated, but very good."

The player Benstiti is referring to is almost certainlyBouhaddi, who is currently playing forOL Reign's sister club Lyon.

Lyon owner Jean-Michel Aulas said last month that two out of the star trio ofBouhaddi, Dzsenifer Marozsan andWendie Renardwould likely join OL Reign when their campaign with Lyon ends.

Bardsley was England's starter at the 2019 World Cup but suffered a serious hamstring injury during the tournamentthat kept her out for 15 months.

She has since returned to fitness and was called in to England's November training camp, but has been overtaken byEllie Roebuck as Man City's starter.
