Manchester City Women have announced the signing of Belgian striker Tessa Wullaert from Wolfsburg.
The 25-year-old has agreed to a two-year contract and becomes their fourth signing of the summer, joining Lauren Hemp, Caroline Weir and Gemma Bonner.
Speaking to CityTV, Wullaert said: "This is such a great place, where everything is a place for football,
"I think it'll be great to work and train here, and I'm really excited and looking forward to it.
"There was only one club [in England] I wanted to play at, and I told my manager 'I want to play at City', so let it begin."
Wullaert, who is Belgium's all-time leading goalscorer, will wear the number 25 shirt at City and has undoubtedly been brought in to boost City's strike force after they finished as runners-up in last season's WSL behind Chelsea.
Wullaert's new manager at City, Nick Cushing, is looking forward to working with the new signing. "We are excited to welcome Tessa to the squad and have her with us in the United States for our first pre-season tour," Cushing said.
"Tessa will be an important addition to the team as we prepare to compete on all fronts next season.
"With her impressive career so far, Tessa offers a wealth of experience and valuable leadership skills that will benefit the whole squad.
"We are looking forward to seeing what else she can bring to the team and can't wait to work with her".
Wullaert began her career at Belgium's SV Zulte Waregem, before moving on to Anderlecht in 2012. After just one season, however, she made the switch to Standard Liege and moved on once again in 2015 to her former club, Wolfsburg.
