Nadia Nadim is returning to the NWSL.
It marks the second Paris Saint-Germain player to exit the club and join the NWSL after Alana Cook returned to the OL Reign on a permanent transfer Monday.
Racing Louisville FC announced the signing of the forward this morning.

It’s not Nadim’s first time playing in the NWSL. The Danish national teamer previously played for Sky Blue FC and the Portland Thorns, where she won the 2016 Shield and 2017 title. Most recently, she helped Paris Saint-Germain unseat Lyon at the top of France’s Division 1 Féminine scoring 10 goals in 15 matches.
She’ll provide a much-needed scoring boost for Racing Louisville who currently sits at ninth in the standings after back-to-back losses.
