West Ham’s women’s team are expected to sign Grace Fisk from the South Carolina Gamecocks.
Grace Fisk, a 5’6″ defender, who hails from Bromley in South East London, played for Millwall before moving to America in 2016 and she is expected to return to the capital during this transfer window.
In the States, she joined Penn State before signing for South Carolina the following year where she was named captain in the summer.
In her first season with the Gamecocks, Fisk started 19 of their 23 games and scored three (with one assist). One of her goals won a semi-final of the Women’s College Cup, sending her side to the final, while another won them a game against Missouri.
Fisk, who turns 22 on 5 January, can join the Hammers any time between the FA WSL transfer window opening today (27 December) and when it closes on 23 January.
It is also expected that Fisk will make her senior England breakthrough soon as she is seen as being very close to making Phil Neville’s squad after he mentioned her back in the summer.
Last summer, we spoke exclusively to Fisk as she captained the England u20 side during their FIFA u20 World Cup qualifying campaign.
West Ham could also see Brooke Hendrix leave for Washington Spirit during this window.
