Chelsea FC Women forward Adelina Engman has completed a transfer to French side Montpellier HSC.

The 25-year-old, who joined from Swedish club Kopparbergs/Goteborg in the summer of 2018, departs after two seasons at the club.

She made 25 appearances and scored six goals, including a crucial stoppage-time equaliser against Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Finland international suffered a thigh injury in the third game of the season, resulting in limited involvement for the rest of the campaign.

Head coach Emma Hayes told chelseafc.com: ‘That equaliser at Brighton has gone a long way to securing another league title for us.

‘I know Adelina hasn’t had the best couple of years, due to injury, but she’s made telling contributions when they mattered. She’s been a great team-mate off the pitch, a pleasure to coach, and I look forward to seeing her career progress at her new club.’
