Ahead of Wales' 2017 Women's European Championship qualifying campaign in Austria in September, former captain Jess Fishlock has revealed she will be on loan again from Seattle Reign.

Wales midfielder Fishlock is in the national squad to play Austria on Tuesday and says she will spend the National Women's Soccer League's off-season on loan with an undisclosed club.

Fishlock has had loans with Glasgow City, Melbourne Victory and Frankfurt during her three seasons with Seattle.

The 28-year-old will join another club on loan after the Championship final against FC Kansas City on 1 October.

"I have something planned and I'm really excited," she said.

"I always feel that I can't go five or six months without training in a club environment or without playing competitive games.

"I always make sure during the off-season I'm going somewhere and playing at that level."

The former Bristol Academy and AZ Alkmaar player was on loan at Frankfurt during the 2014-15 season and featured in the German side's successful Champions League campaign.

She scored eight goals as Seattle Reign claimed the NWSL Shield for a second successive season as well as securing a play-off final against FC Kansas City.

Fishlock has returned to the UK for Wales' opening Euro 2017 qualifier against Austria in St Polten on Tuesday, 22 September.
