Northern Ireland international Simone Magill is to end a spell of over nine years with Everton when her contract expires in the summer.

Magill became the first Northern Ireland women’s international to sign a full-time professional contract in 2017.

The 27-year-old forward, who has over 50 caps for her country, helped Everton reach two FA Cup finals and top the second tier in 2017.

Magill told evertontv: “It’s never an easy decision. I’ve been here for nine years. To say I’m emotional is an understatement.

“I’ve grown to love the club, the fans, the people and what it stands for.

“To leave this club will be very sad. Everton is filled with fantastic people.
