Morgan Brian has signed a contract with the Chicago Red Stars, the club announced Tuesday. The Red Stars said her contract with the team is for the remainder of the 2018 NWSL season.
Brian spent the first part of 2018 with Olympique Lyonnais in France, appearing in four games and scoring one goal.
The Red Stars acquired Brian in a trade with the Houston Dash last August and she appeared in two games for Chicago before departing for Lyon this offseason. She was drafted No. 1 overall by the Dash in 2015 and has three assists in 35 career NWSL appearances.
Brian has battled injuries in 2017 and 2018, but recently returned to the U.S. women’s national team and played 45 minutes in their 2-1 win over China PR on June 12.
