Lindsey Horan will remain with Olympique Lyonnais even after her loan from the Portland Thorns expires.

The U.S. women’s national team midfielder joined Lyon in January 2022 after six seasons with Portland in the NWSL. Her contract with the Thorns runs through 2025, while her loan spell is set to expire in June.

While the two sides are still ironing out the details, Horan is expected to stay with the French club following the conclusion of her loan, Lyon manager Sonia Bompastor said Tuesday. It remains unclear what that will look like, whether an extension of her loan or a full transfer to the French club.

Prior to joining the Thorns, the Colorado native spent four years with Paris Saint-Germain. She then returned to the United States, making 87 appearances for the Thorns and scoring 25 goals.

She has made 32 appearances for Lyon in the Champions League and in Division 1 Feminine while on loan, notching seven goals.
