Glasgow City are thrilled to announce the signing of Swedish player Anna Oscarsson from Damallsvenskan side Eskilstuna United.
The 26 year old, capped 5 times by Sweden can play in midfield and defence and has been a regular in all top three Swedish sides she has played for, most recently Eskilstuna whom she joined in 2020. Oscarsson has also had spells with Linköpings and Hammarby.
A technically gifted and hardworking player, Oscarsson will be a real asset to Leanne Ross and her side as the race continues for the SWPL title and the Scottish Cup takes pace.
The Swedish player joins Linda Motlhalo in the January window, as well as the pro signings of Sophia Martin and Lisa Forrest are set to bolster the squad competition for the remainder of the season.
Anna Oscarsson on signing with Glasgow City:
“I'm so excited to have signed with Glasgow City. I had a very good first impression of how professionally the club was run. The high ambitions of the club are also in line with my own. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and start the hard work to reach our goals this season.”
Interim Head Coach Leanne Ross on the signing:
"I am delighted a player of Anna Oscarsson's quality has chosen to sign here at Glasgow City. She arrives with a vast amount of experience having played for top Swedish sides Hammarby, Linkopings and Eskilstuna, as well as winning five senior national team caps for Sweden.
"Anna has excellent defensive attributes and will certainly add strength to our backline, while her calmness under pressure and ability on the ball mean that she also loves to get forward to support the team in attack.
"It is great to have Anna here and I am excited to see what she can add to our team."
