        Fran Kirby to leave Chelsea

        England forward Fran Kirby will leave Chelsea at the end of the season after nine years at the club.

        Kirby originally joined the Blues from Reading in 2015 for what was then a record fee for a British women's player.

        That proved to be money well spent for Chelsea with Kirby becoming a part of their squad and winning 14 trophies (including multiple WSL, FA Cup, and League Cup wins).

        "For me, I was just a young girl who loved football," Kirby said about her time at the club. "And it still is that now. I’m a bit older now, but still, someone who just loves to play football.

        "Part of my job is to play well, win trophies and football games. If I can do that and inspire young girls to be footballers or any form of athlete. That is enough for me.

        "Growing up I never thought I could impact it so much. So I’m really proud I have been able to impact in a positive way and doing that for a club like Chelsea is something I’m really proud of.

        "Hopefully, I leave the club in a better place than when I first came in. For me then, the job is done."

        The 30-year-old has played 29 times for Chelsea so far this season, scoring five and assisting four.

        But to be in a position now to hopefully do that, that’s the main aim.

She has been a crucial part of the team, helping them secure 14 trophies and setting a high standard for British women's players.
