Another Westfield Matildas star has been snapped up by an overseas club after her brilliant displays at the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Midfielder Elise Kellond-Knight has joined German Women’s Bundesliga club FFC Turbine Potsdam on a two-year deal.

It comes just a day after Matildas striker Kyah Simon penned a one-year-deal with US outfit Boston Breakers.
Kellond-Knight was arguably the Matildas' best in Canada, claiming back-to-back player of the match awards in the games against Sweden and Brazil.
"This (Kellond-Knight) is a real firecracker," Potsdam coach Bernd Schröder said.
"Despite her young age, she is already a very experienced player.
"She has the football skills and attitude to be an absolute (key) player with us.”
Kellond-Knight is enjoying a short break after the Matildas’ World Cup exploits and is expected to link up with her new club in mid-July to start training.comments
