The 32-year-old centre-back had two spells with the Gunners totalling eight years, in which she made 166 appearances and scored 33 goals.

Sporting Director Edu Gaspar told “Jen has had a beautiful career with Arsenal and we want to say a big thank you for her many years with us. She has helped to bring titles to our club and as a person, she is a great example of strength. We wish her success and happiness in the USA and she is welcome here in her home at any time.”

She has been a wonderful player for us across two periods here and we’re excited to watch her in this new chapter.
