England forward Nikita Parris joins Lyon after leaving Manchester City

Nikita Parris has agreed a move to European champions Lyon.

The 25-year old England forward joins the French club on a free transfer, having left Manchester City after four years there.

Parris, who won the Football Writers’ Player of the Year Award last month, is expected to be one of Phil Neville’s key England players at this summer’s World Cup in France.

Lyon, who won their fourth consecutive Champions League last weekend, also have British players Lucy Bronze, Izzy Christiansen and Jess Fishlock in their squad.

Toxteth-born Parris began her career with Everton, where she broke into the first team at just 16 years old.
