Kyah Simon joins PSV

Westfield Matildas’ forward Kyah Simon has been signed by Dutch side PSV for the Eredivisie Vrouwen season. 

Simon joins the current Eredivisie leaders following an all-conquering season with Melbourne City in the Westfield W-League. 

The move to the Netherlands will be Simon’s first stint in Europe after spending the last eight years traversing between Australia and the United States.  

"I am here to win," Simon told PSV's official website.

“I am excited to be part of PSV. The atmosphere, facilities and club appeal to me. I had been open to a new challenge for a while.

"Europe, and the Netherlands in particular, breathes football. PSV is a club with an illustrious history. I was looking for all that."

A versatile player in the final third, Simon’s 2019/20 Westfield W-League season and recent form with the Westfield Matildas drew the attention of the club.  

As well as three Westfield W-League championships and two premierships, Simon has amassed 92 caps for the Westfield Matildas, including at two FIFA Women’s World Cups and the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. 

Already in Eindhoven, the 29 year old joins fellow Sydneysider Amy Harrison as they look to assist the Dutch side to first Eredivisie league title.
