PARIS — Canadian soccer star Ashley Lawrence has signed with French club Paris St. Germain.

The team announced on its website that Lawrence passed a physical and is signed through the 2019 season. She is expected to join her new club this week.

Lawrence, a midfielder who played most recently at fullback for Canada, has 46 caps for her country.

Last year the 21-year-old helped Canada win its second consecutive Olympic bronze medal at the Rio games, and was a catalyst in West Virginia University's run to the NCAA women's soccer final.
