Sky Blue FC acquires Danish star Nadim on loan
[NWSL] With the re-opening of the transfer window, NWSL clubs continue to import European stars for the second half of the league's second season. Sky Blue FC has
acquired Afghani-Danish star Nadia Nadim on loan from Fortuna Hjorring.
"We would like to thank Fortuna Hjorring for loaning Nadia to us,"
Sky Blue FC technical director and head coach Jim Gabarra said. "We look forward to her contributions to Sky Blue FC. We are confident that we will
benefit from her being a part of our roster and that she will develop from the NWSL experience."
Fortuna Hjorring won the Danish Elitedivisionen in Nadim's second year with the club. The
26-year-old forward made her debut for Denmark during the 2009 Algarve Cup in the 2-0 win against the United States. She also competed in the UEFA Women's Championship in 2009 and 2013.
She scored a goal in the Danes' 5-3 victory over the USA in March at the Algarve Cup.
