Eni Aluko to leave Chelsea

Eni Aluko has announced she is leaving Chelsea after six years at the club.

The 31-year-old, who has 102 caps for England, joined the Blues in 2012 from Birmingham City Ladies.

The striker helped them land the Women’s FA Cup and Women’s Super League titles. Chelsea clinched the latter on Tuesday with a 2-0 win at Bristol City Women.

Aluko, 31, has not been a consistent starter for Emma Hayes’ team and will now move on.

“After five years & 150+ appearances it’s with a heavy heart I confirm I’ll be leaving Chelsea.

“I could not dream of a better ending. To my teammates who I adore, the club and fans THANKYOU.”
