Seattle Reign FC has signed Scottish defender Rachel Corsie, pending receipt of her P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
Corsie, 25, spent last season with Notts County Ladies F.C. in the FAWSL, England’s top flight. She anchored a back line that gave up eight goals in 14 matches, but finished sixth of eight teams in the league with 18 pts.
Corsie scored 13 goals in 70 career matches to date for Scotland, where she plays alongside new Seattle teammate and 2014 NWSL MVP Kim Little.
“Rachel is a terrific player who will bring depth and experience to our backline,” Reign FC coach and general manager Laura Harvey said. “She will make the entire defensive unit stronger by providing us flexibility we lacked last season. We are excited to have her with the club and know she will make an impact.”
Corsie previously played four seasons for Glasgow City, winning the treble — league, league cup and cup — 2009, 2012 and 2013.
Seattle now has four international players: Corsie, Little, Jess Fishlock and new signing Katrine Veje. The maximum number of international slots for each team in 2015 is four, although those roster spots can be traded.
