FC Kansas City stand-out and NWSL Rookie of the Year Erika Tymrak is hopping the Atlantic for at least part of the NWSL off-season. Sources confirmed that Tymrak will be heading to the Frauen-bundesliga to play for FC Bayern München.
It’s still a little too early to confirm if a second FC Kansas City player will join Tymrak in playing for FC Bayern. FC Bayern is likely looking for a replacement for goalkeeper Katja Schroffenegger, who recently tore her ACL.
An announcement from FC Kansas City concerning the signing could come as soon as today or tomorrow.
Tymrak (and the potential second player) will have some American teammates expecting her in Germany, including Amber Brooks (who was drafted by Portland Thorns FC but elected to play for FC Bayern) and Sarah Hagen.
