UKRAINIAN INTERNATIONAL NICOLE KOZLOVA BECOMES GLASGOW CITY’S LATEST RECRUIT

Glasgow City are pleased to announce the signing of Ukrainian international Nicole Kozlova from FK Vorskla Poltava on a two-year-deal.

The 23-year-old striker, who turns 24 this Monday (8th July 2024), arrives following a season where she claimed a League and Cup double at the Ukrainian champions scoring 23 goals in 24 games along the way.

Prior to returning to her homeland Nicole enjoyed a successful spell in Denmark with HB Køge where she lifted the Danish title in both the 2021/22 and 2022/23 seasons while her American college soccer career took her to Virginia Tech.

Born in Canada she has represented the Ukrainian national side on thirty-five occasions and recently scored an equaliser in a Euro 2025 qualifier against Wales and she scored on three occasions whilst competing in last season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League for FK Vorskla Poltava.

On making the switch to Glasgow City Nicole had the following to say:

“First of all they showed interest in me and you want to be in an environment that wants you and as they explained the project to me, their ambitions, the history of the club and that want to win championships I knew it was the place for me to be.”

“I’m really excited and so glad it’s all come together. I can’t wait to get started.”

Quote from Glasgow City Head Coach Leanne Ross on signing Nicole:

"Nicole is a young, talented professional with a great variety of life and football experience. Her game intelligence and technical ability mean she can play as a centre forward or in a wide attacking role."

"Although still early in her professional career, it is clear she has the drive and mentality to succeed, winning titles in Denmark and Ukraine, whilst also being a regular goal scorer for club and country."

"Nicole is an intelligent footballer, her awareness, movement and technical proficiency with both feet mean she can score all different types of goals. She can also be a creative influence on the team with her ability to receive the ball under pressure and commit defenders with her close control and dribbling skills."

"I am delighted a player of Nicole’s ability and experience has identified Glasgow City as a professional, competitive environment where she can develop and flourish. Adding Nicole to our squad will strengthen our attacking capabilities and no doubt excite the fans of Glasgow City."
