Olympique Lyonnais are thrilled to announce the arrival of two German internationals to Reynald Pedros' squad: Lisa Weiss and Carolin Simon.

Goalkeeper Lisa WEISS, 30, joins Lyon from SGS Essen. A German international (10 caps), she was a member of the squad that won Euro 2009.

Left back Carolin SIMON, 25, arrives at OL from SC Freiburg. She's been capped nine times with the German National Team and has won Euro U17 (2008, 2009) and Euro U19 (2011), as well as an Olympic gold medal in 2016.

Both player signings, which last through June 30, 2020, are part of OL's strategy of strengthening the squad and the club's international standing.

Olympique Lyonnais are delighted to have secured the services of Weiss and Simon, who will help consolidate a group that has been re-shaped with the departure of talented players such as Jessica Houara-d'Hommeaux, Kheira Hamraoui, Kenza Dali, Claire Lavogez, as well as the retirement of long-time stars Camille Abily, Corine Petit and Elodie Thomis. Three additional players (Morgan Brian, Pauline Peyraud Magnin, Mylaine Tarrieu) also left the club on June 30, 2018.

The club thanks all these players for their contributions to the team and wishes them good luck in their future endeavors.
