Seattle Reign FC have loaned midfielder Jess Fishlock to Olympique Lyon, the Reign announced Monday. The loan is effective immediately and will conclude when Lyon’s 2018/2019 UEFA Women’s Champions League campaign is complete.

The Champions League Final — which Lyon will be a favorite to appear in — is scheduled for May 18, 2019. Lyon are the three-time defending champions.

“Growing up in Europe it was always a dream to someday play in the Champions League – it is a magical competition. When I went on loan to Frankfurt in 2015 I got to enjoy the competition, but I had to return to the NWSL prior to the final. I feel very lucky to have the chance to return to the competition with Lyon and to hopefully have the chance to play in the final,” Fishlock said in a Reign news release.

“Seattle have been fantastic and have always supported me. I am extremely thankful to be part of such a tremendous organization. I cannot wait to get back to Seattle to work towards the title next season with the Reign.”
