Manchester United Women have confirmed that Aurora Mikalsen will leave the club this month upon expiry of her contract.

Norwegian international goalkeeper Mikalsen made one appearance for United this season, featuring in the 11-1 Continental Cup win over Leicester City in November.

The 24-year-old joined United from Kolbotn and had amassed 45 caps across Norway’s under-age teams before being called up to the senior side for the last two Algarve Cups.

Manchester United Head Coach Casey Stoney said: “I’d like to personally thank Aurora for her hard work and fantastic contribution this season. She came in and showed great character alongside providing some real competition within our goalkeeping department during a tough season. I have always said releasing players is one of the hardest parts of my job but I wish her all the best for the future.”

Meanwhile, Mollie Green and England U-21 goalkeeper Emily Ramsey have returned to the Reds at the end of their loan spells with Sheffield United. Green scored on both her league starts against Coventry United and Blackburn Rovers.
