Tobin Heath has been released early from her contract with Arsenal Women by mutual consent, following a minor hamstring injury sustained in training.

Heath’s one-year contract with the Gunners was to finish at the end of the 2021/22 season and her injury ruled her out of their remaining matches.

The 33-year-old USWNT veteran of 181 caps made 18 appearances for Arsenal, scoring three goals.

Heath told www.arsenal.com“Although I’m disappointed that my time at Arsenal has come to an early end, I have loved every minute of my time here. I would like to thank everyone at the club who has made me feel so welcome. Arsenal is a special club and this is a special group of players. I have no doubt that they are bound for success in the near future and I’ll be supporting the team with the rest of the Arsenal family from now on.”

Head coach Jonas Eidevall said: “It’s been a pleasure to work with Tobin this season. She has made an important contribution both on and off the pitch, with her mentality and character setting a great example to the entire group. We wish Tobin well for the future and look forward to seeing what comes next for her.”
