Jordan Nobbs has left Arsenal to join Aston Villa on a permanent transfer.
The move brings Jordan’s 12-year association with Arsenal Football Club to an end.
Jordan joined from Sunderland in 2010 and during her time with us made a total of 270 appearances for the club, scoring 81 goals.
A firm fan favourite, Jordan departs with a glittering track record at Arsenal, having helped us to win the Women’s Super League title in 2011, 2012 and 2019. She also lifted the Women’s FA Cup on four occasions and the FA Women’s League Cup five times.
Deserved individual recognition followed as Jordan excelled with Arsenal, and she was named the FA Player of the Year in 2016 and the FA Players’ Player of the Year in 2017.
In addition to her club football, Jordan became a full England international in 2013 and has since won 69 caps and scored eight goals for her country. She was part of the England side that finished third at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2015.
“Jordan has been a wonderful servant to Arsenal Football Club,” said Sporting Director Edu Gaspar. “Over the past 12 years, she has written her name into the Arsenal history books and forged a deep connection with our loyal supporters. We would like to wish Jordan health, happiness and success on and off the pitch in the future – she is a member of the Arsenal family for life.”
Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley added: “Jordan has been an integral part of this football club for over a decade and her contribution and achievements are clear to see. She embodies what it means to be a Gunner and will go down as a true Arsenal legend. We wish her all the very best in this next chapter and look forward to welcoming her back here as our guest whenever she likes.”
The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
