Liverpool FC Women have today confirmed that Laura Coombs and Leandra Little will be leaving the club following the expiration of their contracts.

Midfielder Coombs initially arrived at Liverpool in 2016 on a one-year loan deal from Chelsea but this was made permanent prior to the Spring Series in 2017.

The 28-year-old made a total of 74 appearances for the Reds – 27 last season – and scored seven goals.

Reds’ manager Vicky Jepson paid tribute to Coombs.

She said: “Laura has made 50 appearances in The FA Women’s Super League for LFC Women and as a club we will always be grateful for her contribution during her time here. This season Laura has been a great leader on the pitch during our games and training sessions, and I will be forever thankful for the integral part she played for the team.”

Centre-back Little signed for Liverpool last summer from Doncaster Rovers Belles and made 15 appearances in a season where she also acted as club captain.

Jepson added: “I would like to thank Leandra for her leadership, professionalism and support through the ups and downs this season. Leandra has not only contributed to our team’s positive culture but has driven our education provision for youth players to be one of the best in the UK.”
