Arsenal women release USA international Tobin Heath

Arsenal and Women have confirmed the release of striker Tobin Heath by mutual agreement.

Heath signed Arsenal on a free transfer from Manchester United last year in September.

A statement from Arsenal read: “We can confirm that Tobin Heath has been released early in her contract with the club by mutual agreement.”

Tobin sustained a minor hamstring injury during training last week which resulted in her being ruled out for our remaining matches in the Women’s Premier League at Barclays for the next two weeks.

“Despite my disappointment that my time at Arsenal ended so early, I loved every minute of my time here,” Tobin said.

“I would like to thank everyone at the club who made me feel so welcome. Arsenal is a special club and this is a special group of players. I have no doubts that they will achieve success in the near future and I will. You will support the team with the rest of the Arsenal family from now on.”

During her stay at Arsenal, Tobin made 18 appearances for the club and scored three goals.
