The Houston Dash signed midfielder Havana Solaun on Wednesday to a two-year deal through 2024.

Solaun, who attended Florida, made 14 starts during her 20 appearances over the past two seasons with the North Carolina Courage. The 29-year-old previously was with the Washington Spirit (2017-18), with whom she made 25 starts in 37 appearances and scored five goals.

She has also been with Klepp IL in Norway (2019), Paris FC (2020) and Apollon Ladies in Paris (2020).

“I’m eager for the next stop in my soccer career to begin in Houston,” said Solaun, who represented the United States at the youth level and Jamaica at the senior level.

“I have always strived to further challenge my skill set both on and off the field. I am grateful that the Houston Dash will be a part of that challenge as we aim to win a championship.”

In 2019, Solaun scored Jamaica’s first ever FIFA Women’s World Cup goal when she delivered against Australia.
