Arsenal Women forward Tobin Heath has been released early from the contract after she sustained a hamstring injury. Her contract was terminated by mutual agreement. The American was signed on a free transfer in September until the end of the season. She suffered the injury in training which subsequently ended her season. Heath made 18 appearances for the club although she started just three games in the Women’s Super League.
“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,” Arsenal Women said in a statement.
“Although I’m disappointed that my time at Arsenal has come to an early end, I have loved every minute of my time here,” Arsenal Women forward Tobin Heath said in a statement. “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.”
“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,” head coach Jonas Eidevall said. “We wish Tobin well for the future and look forward to seeing what comes next for her.”
