Morgan Brian Departs for Olympique Lyonnaise

CHICAGO – The Chicago Red Stars and U.S. Women’s National Team midfielder Morgan Brian has signed a deal to play for French side Olympique Lyonnaise for the 2018 season. Chicago will retain the rights to Brian in the NWSL.

“We knew when we traded for Morgan that she had a strong desire to go overseas and play for Lyon,” said head coach Rory Dames. “We wish her the best of luck with Lyon, and will always welcome her back as we retain her rights. Our goal stays the same ahead of the 2018 season and we look forward to moving forward in a positive direction.”

Brian joined Chicago in August of this year, earning 85 minutes of action in two games for the Red Stars.
