Ebony Salmon will leave Bristol City Women this summer following the conclusion of her contract with the relegated Robins.

The 20-year-old spent two seasons with the club in the Barclays FAWSL, scoring 18 goals in all competitions.

The youngster found the back of the net on 10 occasions this campaign, making 2020/21 her most prolific season to date.

Salmon won her first senior England call-up back in February and made her Lionesses debut in the 6-0 victory over Northern Ireland.

Now confirmed as moving to the US, Salmon will be playing for Racing Louisville.

“A move to the NWSL is going to be completely different to what I am used to, but at this point in my career I think it is the right opportunity and environment for me to push on and thrive,” she told nwslsoccer.com.

Also departing Bristol City is goalkeeper Benedicte Håland, with the Norwegian joining Icelandic side Selfoss FC.
