Engish outfit, Brighton and Hove Albion has announced the signing of Colombian defender Jorelyn Carabali on undisclosed terms, subject to the usual regulatory processes.
Jorelyn, 26, played for three Colombian clubs – Orsomarso, Atletico Huila, and Deportivo Cali – before heading to Brazil in January 2023 to play for Atletico Mineiro.
She made her international debut in 2022 and played in all five games as Colombia reached the quarter-final of the World Cup before being knocked out by England.
Carabali also helped Colombia reach the Copa America final where they were runners-up to Brazil.
Head coach Melissa Phillips said on the club website, “We’re delighted to have Jorelyn with us. This is her first taste of football in Europe, but we saw from her performances in the World Cup this summer that she has so much to offer in terms of her ability and mentality.
“We look forward to working with her, integrating her into the squad, and helping us achieve our targets this season.”
Kerolin’s goal in the NWSL Challenge Cup final on Saturday didn’t officially count toward her regular season tally, but she continues to climb the Golden Boot ladder.

Her nine regular season goals are tied with Ashley Hatch, and second only to Sophia Smith’s 11 goals thus far.
North Carolina next travels to Orlando to take on the Pride on Sunday.
Kerolin will look to build on her Challenge Cup momentum, with just one regular season goal since her World Cup return.
