Just over a week into the English Women’s Super League (WSL’s) summer transfer window, the English league has seen some of the top flight’s biggest stars bidding adieu to their longtime clubs.

More Details

Perhaps the most massive name on the move is Dutch national Vivianne Miedema, whose contract with former club Arsenal — where she played for seven years — expired on Sunday.

In May, the Gunners chose to not offer the WSL’s most prolific goal-scorer another contract, a decision former England star Ellen White called “shocking that [Arsenal] haven’t shown her the love to want to keep her at the club… she’s still got records to break. It’s just outrageous.”

Capitalizing on Arsenal’s loss is league rival Manchester City — who finished above Arsenal on last season’s table — by reportedly snagging the striker for themselves.

While the WSL transfer window officially opened on June 24th, a handful of roster swaps were already in the works, including big name National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) addition Esme Morgan (Manchester City to Washington Spirit) alongside European standouts Ellie Roebuck (Manchester City to Barcelona) and Mariona Caldentey (Barcelona to Arsenal).

With the transfer window remaining open until September 13th, WSL fans will want to keep an eye on the wire as teams attempt to sharpen their lineups ahead of the 2024-25 season's September 21st kick-off.
