Alyssa Naeher will soon join the Boston Breakers, The Equalizer has learned. The American goalkeeper played the past two seasons for Turbine Potsdam, whose German season is now over.
Naeher played for the Breakers in 2010 and 2011. She is expected to join the team this weekend, but will not yet be eligible to play.
Boston already boasts two goalkeepers who have been trading starts, Ashley Phillips and Mexican international Cecilia Santiago. Currently Colleen Boyd is also on the roster, after being called up to travel to Kansas City with the team.
With defender Bianca D’Agostino on the injured reserve list, the Breakers’ maximum roster size is only 19 players.
The Breakers have not confirmed the signing at this time.
