Portland Thorns FC today has loaned midfielder Amber Brooks to FC Bayern Munich — her previous club — for the 2014-15 Frauen-Bundesliga season.
Brooks scored 10 goals in 22 appearances in 2013 with Bayern Munich prior to joining Portland.
With the Thorns this season, Brooks appeared in 20 matches, scoring once and adding two assists. She was Portland’s third-round pick (24th overall) in the 2013 NWSL College Draft from the University of North Carolina, a selection made by then head coach Cindy Parlow Cone.
Brooks left Bayern Munich for Portland as part of the mass offseason homecoming for U.S. players to the NWSL.
Dash re-sign Henderson
The Houston Dash have re-signed forward Melissa Henderson, four-month loan to Fortuna Hjørring of the Danish Elitedivisionen beginning Sept. 1.
Henderson, 25, was acquired by the Dash from FC Kansas City via a trade in July. She appeared in all nine remaining Dash matches following the trade, starting eight. Henderson also played for current Dash coach Randy Waldrum at Notre Dame.
Fortuna Hjørring are defending champions and currently first in this season’s table.
