Taylor to leave Arsenal

Jodie Taylor celebrates against Everton

On the expiry of Jodie Taylor’s  contract, she will join Melbourne City FC in January until the end of the Australian season. Jodie will then move back to the USA, where she will join Seattle Reign on a longer-term contract.

Jodie said: “My time at Arsenal has been an experience to remember and I leave  behind a very professional setup that I have no doubt will be hugely competitive for the rest of the season and in the future.

“I am disappointed not to get the opportunity to work with Joe but I wish him and the club lots of success for the future.

"My heart has long been in America and I am excited to sign with Seattle Reign after hopefully a successful remainder of the season with Melbourne City.”

We would like to thank Jodie for her true professionalism and we wish her the very best for her future.
