Denise O'Sullivan joins Brighton on loan
Cork's Denise O'Sullivan is on the move.
The Republic of Ireland star is to join Brighton and Hove albion on loan until the end of December.
The 25 year old won the NWSL title with North Carolina Courage and was named their MVP two years in a row, and is making the loan move in order to be available for Ireland's Euro 2021 qualifiers.
O'Sullivan joins fellow Cork woman Megan Connolly and Irish team mate Rianna Jarrett at Brighton.
Courage head coach was full of praise for the Knocknaheeny native, saying on the Courage website:
“O’Sullivan will change Brighton’s whole way of playing.
“She has a massive impact on tactics because she controls the tempo, dictates the tempo and her job functions are multi-faceted. She is the first player on the team sheet every week in Courage Country and she has left an indelible mark on our younger players through her training habits, game preparation rituals and her magical mindset which sets her apart from most professional players.
"She is a fantastic player and we understand she has some huge games coming up for her country that she must play in and therefore we felt it was in the best interests of player safety and player development that we put her on loan so quarantine restrictions would not deny her the ability to fully train and prepare for our 2021 season.”
