Wales captain Jess Fishlock will join German champions Frankfurt on loan from Seattle Reign when the National Women's Soccer League season ends.

Fishlock will move to Germany following the play-offs in the United States, returning to Seattle for the start of the 2015 season.

The 27-year-old, capped 80 times by Wales, has also spent loan spells with Glasgow City and Melbourne Victory.

"It is a club with a high reputation and a long tradition," Fishlock said.

"I feel honoured to embark on this challenge and hope I can contribute to a successful season."

The midfielder previously played for Cardiff City LFC, Bristol Academy and AZ Alkmaar before joining Seattle Reign in 2013.

"Jessica is very experienced and has developed into a key player for Seattle Reign over recent years," Frankfurt coach Colin Bell said.

"She is technically strong and is an aggressive midfielder who pushes the right buttons in build-up play.

"Her personality and winning mentality make her a perfect fit for our job requirements."
