Yuka Momiki joins Leicester City from a Swedish side, Linköpings FC. She penned a deal until the end of the next season.
The 27-year-old spent the majority of her career playing for Nippon TV Beleza, where she stayed for eleven years. In 2020, the Japanese midfielder went abroad for the first time in her career, joining OL Reign. Initially as a loaned player, Momiki’s transfer to Linköpings FC became permanent in 2022. In Allsvenskan, she played over 50 matches.
“England is always the best country to play football and this is my dream, so I am really proud of myself,” added Momiki.
