[NWSL 2014 COUNTDOWN] The move of Canadian international Desiree Scott, one of the top midfielders in the NWSL's first season, from FC Kansas City to newly formed Notts County Ladies of England's Women's Super League has gone through.

The Canadian Soccer Association had allocated Scott to FC Kansas City for a second season only for everyone to learn Scott had signed with Notts County (formerly Lincoln Ladies) as she never signed her contract extension with FC Kansas City.

Scott's agent, Chuck Vine, told The Equalizer in January that "Desiree is considered a ‘World XI’ caliber player and should be afforded the same opportunities as other elite players from around the world. She like all other players have a very limited window to earn income as a professional athlete. There must be a distinction between national responsibility and financial responsibility without judgment or criticism."

Scott was part of one of the NWSL's best midfields in 2013 and is considered a key player on Canada's national team, the host team of the 2015 Women's World Cup.

“We are disappointed to lose a player of Desiree’s quality,” FC Kansas City head coach Vlatko Andonovski said in a statement, "but we wish her all the best with her new club and know that our team is building a roster that can once again challenge for the league title."

The eight-team Women's Super League kicks off in April. Teams are partly subsidized by the English FA as part of its efforts to promote women's soccer. Scott is only one of several international players Notts County has signed.
