Arsenal Women have confirmed goalkeeper Pauline Peyraud-Magnin is leaving the club when her contract expires this summer.

Peyraud-Magnin only featured three times for the Gunners during the 2019-20 Super League season, playing 270 minutes in total before the competition was ended with immediate effect due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Frenchwoman also played four Continental Cup games as the Gunners went on to reach the final and three Champions League ties.

She joined from Lyon in July 2018 and made 26 appearances across all competitions, playing a vital role in the 2018-19 WSL title-winning season when keeping seven clean sheets and dislodging Sari Van Veenedaal from her position.

A statement on Arsenal.Com said: “Everyone at Arsenal would like to thank Pauline for her contribution to the team’s success, and for her exceptional professionalism and commitment to the club.”
