    CHICAGO -- The National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) announced Friday that the League has transferred Canada international Desiree Scott to Notts County Ladies FC of The FA Women's Super League in England.

    As an allocated player from the Canadian Soccer Association, the midfielder was a valuable member of FC Kansas City, which held its opponents to 22 goals last year -- the second-lowest total among the eight teams in the NWSL’s inaugural season.

    "We are disappointed to lose a player of Desiree's quality but we wish her all the best with her new club and know that our team is building a roster that can once again challenge for the league title," FC Kansas City head coach Vlatko Andonovski said.

    Scott has also been a fixture for Canada since her debut in February 2010.  She has won 71 caps and helped Canada capture the bronze medal in the 2012 Olympic Games.
