SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Royals and United States Women’s National Team player Kelley O’Hara remains in Utah, for now, despite multiple requests to be traded to the Washington Spirit, according to Steven Goff from the Washington Post.

O’Hara, 32, hails from Washington D.C. and has expressed her desire to play her final professional years for her home club.

Since arriving at the Royals in 2018, O’Hara has appeared in 14 games scoring 1 goal but has struggled with staying fit and healthy.
