Manchester City have signed Jamaican striker Khadija Shaw following her departure from Bordeaux.

Shaw was the top goalscorer in the Division 1 Féminine with 22 goals last season and was the only non-Paris Saint-Germain or Lyon player named in the league's team of the season.

The striker, who is nicknamed 'Bunny', has signed a three-year contract at City and had been linked with a transfer to the club in April.

She recently sat out Jamaica's 1-0 win over Nigeria in the opening match of the WNT Summer Series in the United States, with the federation stating it was "for time to recover from an intense season and to consider her future".

Shaw posted a goodbye message to Bordeaux on her Instagram account, which read: "I would like to start by saying thank you to FC Girondins de Bordeaux for giving me the opportunity to grow and become a better footballer. Thank you to my teammates and staff for making me feel at home since I arrived. I take with me two years of memories, lessons and amazing moments.
