Bay FC is expected to sign Deyna Castellanos in the coming days, according to a report from Manchester World.
A number of reports have indicated that the Venezuelan forward is expected to depart Manchester City this January. While a number of clubs outside of the WSL have shown interest in the forward, NWSL club Bay FC is reportedly close to an agreement with the star.

Castellanos has been with Manchester City since 2022, when she joined the club from Atlético Madrid. She played in 19 games for the club last season and has appeared in five so far this season.
A member of the Venezuelan national team, Castellanos has made 38 international appearances, scoring 22 goals. Castellanos played collegiately at Florida State before joining Atlético.
The signing would be a big splash for Bay FC, who have already added Mexican star Scarlett Camberos and striker Rachel Hill. Other NWSL clubs have been trying, to no avail, to get the Venezuelan star to the league.
Bay FC also have the No. 2 pick in the NWSL draft on Friday.
