Glasgow City FC have pulled off a major coup, announcing the return of Scotland international Lisa Evans on a three-year deal.

A former Glasgow City player, Evans spent the early part of her career at the club, winning an impressive haul of four Scottish Women's Premier League (SWPL) titles, two Scottish Cups, and two SWPL Cups during a hugely successful spell.

She then moved to German side Turbine Potsdam in 2012. Since then, Evans has gone on to earn 109 caps for Scotland and win league titles with both Bayern Munich and Arsenal.

Most recently, she played in the English Women's Super League with West Ham United and Bristol City.

Her decision to come back to Glasgow City has certainly raised eyebrows, given her impressive resume at the highest levels of the game.

However, the player herself is "absolutely buzzing" to return to her roots and give back to the team that once dominated the Scottish women's football landscape.

“I’ve had a great playing career in Germany and down south and I felt like I owed it in some way to come back and to help Glasgow City get success again.”
