Huitema signs 4-yr deal with Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain is pleased to announce that Canada international Jordyn Huitema from the Vancouver Whitecaps has agreed a four-year contract with the Parisian club, becoming the first Canadian female to turn pro straight out of high school.
The 18-year-old striker came through the ranks at Vancouver Whitecaps Girls Elite, and in July 2018 Jordyn’s club allowed her to join Paris Saint-Germain at the first Women's International Champions Cup in the United States. Huitema pulled on the Rouge & Bleu shirt twice against Manchester City and once against the USA’s North Carolina Courage at the pre-season tournament.
In 2017, while still only 16, the striker became the first player to score for the Canada U17s, U20s and for the senior team in the same calendar year, securing the Golden Boot at the U20s. Jordyn Huitema has earned 19 caps so far for Canada, scoring six goals as she prepares to compete in the next World Cup in France from 7 June to 7 July 2019.
"We are delighted to have reached an agreement with Jordyn Huitema," said Paris Saint-Germain Feminines general manager Bruno Cheyrou. “She is a player with very high potential and a good margin for improvement. Despite her young age, Jordyn has already broken into Canada's national team, which says a lot about her talent and character. Her profile suits the Paris Saint-Germain project perfectly.”
