German giants snap up Matildas midfielder

Another Westfield Matildas star has been snapped up by an overseas club after her brilliant displays at the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Midfielder Elise Kellond-Knight has joined German Women’s Bundesliga club FFC Turbine Potsdam on a two-year deal.

It comes just a day after Matildas striker Kyah Simon penned a one-year-deal with US outfit Boston Breakers.

Kellond-Knight was arguably the Matildas' best in Canada, claiming back-to-back player of the match awards in the games against Sweden and Brazil.

"This [Kellond-Knight] is a real firecracker," Potsdam coach Bernd Schröder said. 

"Despite her young age, she is already a very experienced player.

"She has the football skills and attitude to be an absolute [key] player with us.”

Kellond-Knight is enjoying a short break after the Matildas’ World Cup exploits and is expected to link up with her new club in mid-July to start training.
