Van de Sanden Leaves Liverpool for Lyon

Liverpool Ladies FC have confirmed that Shanice Van De Sanden has agreed a transfer to UEFA Women’s Champions League holders Olympique Lyonnais Féminin.

Winger Van De Sanden recently won the UEFA Women’s European Championships with host nation Netherlands and has now agreed a move to the Division 1 Feminine side.

On the move to France, Van De Sanden said: “I have loved my time at Liverpool Ladies and feel as though I have taken my game to the next level since moving here in 2016. I have made friends for life and will take away some fantastic memories.

“This was a really tough decision to make as the squad at Liverpool Ladies is one with big potential. However, the chance to play for the current UEFA Women’s Champions League holders was too good of an opportunity to turn down and one that I am really excited about.”

Liverpool Ladies have thanked Shanice for her valuable contribution since joining the club and wish her the best of luck for the future.

The question is now, who mightLiverpool potentially bring in to bolster their forward line, having lost Katie Zelem (attacking midfielder) and now Van de Sanden (speedy wide player) to overseas teams?
