Vanessa Gilles joins Olympique Lyon on loan from the US side, Angel City FC. She penned a contract until the end of the season.
The 26-year-old already has experience from the French top flight, when she spent three seasons with Girondins Bordeaux between 2018 and 2021. Last year, the Canadian centre-back returned to the US, where she already played during her college career. Gilles made 13 appearances for Angel City.
Lyon also signed Ines Jaurena and Sara Däbritz during the summer.
