West Ham sign USA international Mewis

West Ham Women have signed USA international Kristie Mewis, subject to international clearance.

The 32-year-old midfielder joins the club from NJ/NY Gotham FC, who were crowned National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) champions at the end of last season.

Mewis - whose sister, Sam, spent the 2020/21 season at Manchester City - has also earned 53 caps for the United States. She has won the CONCACAF Women's Championship and three SheBelieves Cup titles with her counter, and scored in the last-16 penalty shootout against Sweden at the 2023 Women's World Cup.

The midfielder will wear the No15 shirt at West Ham and has spent much of her time in the NSWL. It includes a four-season spell with Houston Dash, as well as time on loan at Bayern Munich earlier in her career.

Last season, she played 23 matches in the NWSL regular season and the challenge cup, where she helped Gotham FC to the NWSL Championship after victory in the play-offs.
