Manchester United Women’s forward Jess Sigsworth is to leave the club when her contract expires at the end of this month.

Sigsworth joined United in 2018 from Doncaster Rovers Belles, winning the Championship Golden Boot award as the Reds sealed promotion to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.

The 26-year-old striker netted 26 goals in 66 appearances for Manchester United, placing her third in the club’s all-time top-scorers list behind only Ella Toone and Lauren James.
