Jade Bailey, Meikayla Moore and Rianna Dean are among those leaving Championship winners Liverpool when their current contracts expire this summer.

Midfielder Bailey joined the Reds from Chelsea in July 2019, with centre-back Moore signing on ahead of the 2020-21 season and striker Dean arriving last summer, all helping Liverpool regain their place in the WSL.

Chelsea loanee Charlotte Wardlaw has returned to her parent club after a season-long loan, while Academy graduate Evie Smith is another to move on.

Manager Matt Beard told liverpoolfc.com: “I would like to thank all these players for their important contributions during their time with the club – whether in games, in training or just as valued members of the group.

“It is the nature of the game that people move on but we have created special memories this season as a squad that will stay with us, and all of these players have been a part of that.”
