Leicester City Women have announced that five players will leave this summer following the expiration of their contracts.

Esmee De Graaf, Paige Bailey-Gayle, Sophie Harris, plus loan signings Abbi Grant and Luana Zajmi all leave after helping the Foxes stay up in its first-ever WSL campaign.

De Graaf joined the Foxes in 2020 but is returning home to her native Netherlands, while Jamaica international Bailey-Gayle departs after three seasons with the club.

Goalkeeper Harris joined from Watford last year, while striker Grant and midfielder Zajmi move on after each spent the second half of the season with Glasgow City and Blackburn Rovers respectively.
