Republic of Ireland international Katie McCabe has left FA Super League side Arsenal to join Glasgow City on loan until the end of Scottish Women's Premier League season.
The 21-year-old striker/winger moved to the Gunners from Shelbourne in December 2015 but her struggles to nail down a regular place in the starting team and injury problems have slowed her progress.
“Katie is a player who has been on our radar for some time now and we are delighted that we can finally bring her to Glasgow City," commented City Head Coach, Scott Booth.
"Her technical ability, pace and vision will threaten any defence. We have some really competitive games to play in the second half of the season and a player of her quality can be a match winner when things get tight."
The Tallaght native joins three fellow Irishwomen Savannah McCarthy, Noelle Murray and Keeva Keenan and she is relishing the opportunity she has been given with the Scottish club.
“I'm really excited to be joining Glasgow City on a loan move. It's a great opportunity for me to work with such a successful women's club and one with a great history.
"I'm really looking forward to the rest of the season and I can't wait to help the team try and win even more trophies.”
City currently lie second in the SWPL1 with nine games of the season left to play and they are just two points behind Hibs at the top, with a game in hand, while they have been drawn to play SWPL2 side Hearts in the next round of the Scottish Cup on August 20.
