Diane Caldwell has joined American National Women's Soccer League side North Carolina Courage. 

The Republic of Ireland international has been with German outfit, SC Sand since 2016 where she was captain.

Caldwell will link up with fellow Ireland international Denise O'Sullivan in North Carolina.

"I would like to thank SC Sand for the wonderful four and a half years full of wonderful moments," Caldwell told SC Sand's website, "Especially for the historic cup final in 2017.

"Sand quickly became my home for me, especially because of all the great teammates, the great fans and the heartwarming community.

"I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for the love they showed me. My heart will be blue and white forever."

Sand manager and executive director Gerald Jungmann praised Caldwell to the heavens, saying, "She was an absolute role model in terms of commitment and behaviour.

"Diane was an exemplary captain who has always been one hundred percent committed to the team and the club."

Balbriggan native Caldwell has 79 international caps to her name.

NC Courage head coach Paul Riley is delighted to be getting a player so rich with experience, "Diane has the experience, intelligence, and positional ability to be a great professional in the NWSL," he said.

"She is a no-nonsense defender with excellent passing range and is a major threat on set pieces.

"She has the character and determination to be an immediate leader on our team. She is a super passionate professional who will embrace the Courage culture wholeheartedly."
