International Edition By: Ambrose Udeme | 16/05/2018

Nigerian descent and Chelsea Ladies striker Eniola Aluko will leave the Women's Super League champions when the season ends on Sunday.

The 31-year-old forward who has 102 caps for England in a statement on Monday announced she would be departing with a "heavy heart".

"Another League & FA Cup double. 2015 was a dream come true to do it again I'm beyond words.

"After 5 yrs & 150+ appearances it's with a heavy heart I confirm I'll be leaving @chelseafc I couldn't dream of a better ending. To my teammates who I adore, the club and fans THANKYOU."

Aluko was on the bench as the Blues won the title at Bristol City on Tuesday, and will leave after their campaign ends at Liverpool Ladies on Sunday.

Aluko is yet to lift the lid on where she will be heading, although she reportedly held talks with Paris St-Germain and one other overseas club in January.

Aluko since her involvement in a discrimination case against former England Women boss Mark Sampson last year has not played for England since 2016.
