Arsenal defender Simone Boye will leave the club for Swedish club Hammarsby. The Danish international joined from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2021 on a one-year deal.

Boye has found it difficult to break into the team with Leah Williamson, Lotte Wubben-Moy and Jen Beattie in the squad and Rafaelle added in January. Boye hasn’t played since the FA Cup quarter-final against Coventry United.

Boye had previously worked under coach Jonas Eidevall at Rosengard and was brought in more or less to smooth things over until Arsenal could recruit Rafaelle in January, when her contract with Changchun Zhuouye expired.

30-year-old Boye is a key player in the Danish defence and is currently representing her country at this summer’s European Championships.
