After a successful season in the American NWSL, Wales captain Jessica Fishlock will head back to Melbourne Victory for the 2013/14 W-League season.
Speaking to The Herald Scotland, Fishlock, who is currently playing for Glasgow City in Scotland, is set to join last year’s finalists in November in time for the grand final rematch with Sydney FC.
The return of the 26 year old for a full season is a great boost for the Victorian side as they look to go one step further this season.
Fishlock joins Melbourne on loan from the Seattle Reign where the diminutive midfield enjoyed a stellar first season including collecting the Reign Player of the Year award and being named in the NWSL’s Best XI.
Melbourne Victory commence their season on 10 November with a home opener against defending champions Sydney FC.
