Tobin Heath has signed a six-month contract with Paris Saint-Germain. The Equalizer has confirmed the length of the contract and that Heath will join Portland Thorns FC in the NWSL when the contract expires. It is a similar deal to the one Megan Rapinoe signed with Lyon. That will make Heath and Rapinoe focal points in rivalries on both sides of the Atlantic over the course of the year.
Heath, a three-time national champion at the University of North Carolina, was the no. 1 overall pick in the 2010 WPS draft by the Atlanta Beat. She later played for Sky Blue FC. On the international stage Heath, 24, was part of the U.S. teams at the 2011 World Cup and 2012 Olympic Games where she won a gold medal. She was allocated to the Thorns on Jan. 11.
