Eriksson and Harder to leave Chelsea Women

Chelsea Women captain Magdalena Eriksson will leave the WSL club at the end of this season, with forward Pernille Harder also departing.

Defender Eriksson joined the Blues from Linkoping in her native Sweden in 2017, and has remained a first-team fixture throughout her time at Kingsmeadow, racking up 149 appearances and scoring 11 goals.

Harder joined Emma Hayes' side three years later and was a landmark signing from Wolfsburg in September 2020. Chelsea paid a world-record fee for the Denmark international, which was beaten by Keira Walsh's move from Manchester City to Barcelona last summer.

Harder has spent much of this season sidelined due to injury, but Eriksson has been vital in another successful campaign for Chelsea.

Both players featured in Sunday's Women's FA Cup final win against Manchester United and could yet help the club land their fourth WSL title in a row in their final weeks.
