We can confirm that Tobin Heath has been released early from her contract with the club by mutual agreement.
Tobin sustained a minor hamstring injury in training last week which has ruled her out of our remaining Barclays FA Women’s Super League matches over the next two weeks.
With Tobin’s one-year contract ending at the end of the 2021/22 season, it has been agreed by all parties for Tobin to be released early to enable her to travel back to the USA and focus on her rehabilitation with her personal medical team.
“Although I’m disappointed that my time at Arsenal has come to an early end, I have loved every minute of my time here," said Tobin. "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.”
During her time with us, Tobin made 18 appearances, scoring three goals.
Everyone at the club wishes Tobin well in her next chapter.
