Women’s Super League club West Ham United have signed France defender Hawa Cissoko on an undisclosed-length deal.
The 23-year-old former Paris Saint-Germain youngster arrives from French club ASJ Soyaux.
“It makes me very happy to join West Ham United,” she told the Hammers’ club website.
“I know West Ham is a big club and it is a dream for me to come here and play in England. I am so very, very happy to be here.”
Head coach Matt Beard added: “Hawa is a versatile defender who can offer something a bit different to what we have had in our back-line. She is a very athletic player who doesn’t mind a tackle and comes with a great energy.
“She can also play centre-back and left-back too, which is fantastic for us and gives us options across the defence.”
