Matildas defender Clare Hunt is reportedly expected to join Paris Saint-Germain in the coming days after appearing in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The 24-year-old made her first appearance for the Australian national team in February earlier this year before playing every minute of the Matildas World Cup campaign six months later.

A talented football player growing up, Hunt first joined Canberra United as part of the club’s academy system at the age of 15 in 2014 before making her debut with the side two years later against Newcastle Jets, coming off the bench.

She would then move to the Western Sydney Wanderers, where she has presently been playing since 2021. Her time at the club would see her awarded a national team call-up after continually being one of the best-performing defenders in the competition.

Per Salvatico Anne-Laure, Hunt is reportedly expected to join French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the coming days.

This isn’t the first time the defender has been linked with a move overseas after reports linked her to a move to the Women’s Super League (WSL) along with teammates Kyra Cooney-Cross and Charli Grant.

Last month, Clare Hunt spoke to Optus Sport, detailing that she wants to explore a move overseas, having only played in the A-League for the Western Sydney Wanderers and Canberra United.

“This tournament has shown me that I want to progress my football, and I feel like for me, that’s looking like an overseas move,” Hunt told Optus Sport.

“I’ll make a decision after the World Cup but at this point in time I’m looking to move overseas.”
