England midfielder Izzy Christiansen is expected to join European champions Lyon from Manchester City Women.

The move, which is set to be completed over the weekend, would see the 26-year-old link up with England and former City team-mate Lucy Bronze.

Bronze joined the French club in 2017 and helped them win a third successive Champions League title in May.

Christiansen and Bronze were both part of the England squad that reached the Euro 2017 semi-finals.

Lyon will meet Manchester City in Miami on Thursday, 26 July in the new Women's International Champions Cup pre-season event - a repeat of last season's Women's Champions League semi-final.
