Arsenal defender Louise Quinn is set to leave the club following the expiration of her contract. 

The Republic of Ireland defender joined the Gunners in 2017 from Notts County and helped them win the Women's Super League title in 2019 and the Continental Cup in 2018.

Quinn made 76 appearances and scored seven goals for the club including the winner in the 2018 FA Cup Semi-final against Everton. 

During the title winning season Quinn played 19 times in the 20 league games and had the second best pass accuracy from any outfield player who had played 90 minutes. 

However, due to the signing of Jennifer Beattie, the defender found game time hard to come by in 2019/20 playing just six games and starting just three of those. 

Quinn initially signed a three-month deal with Arsenal following Notts County folding and impressed to secure a longer term contract and also became a big hit with the supporters. 

A statement on Arsenal.com read "Everyone at Arsenal would like to thank Louise for her contribution to the team’s success, and for her exceptional professionalism and commitment to the club. Everyone at Arsenal wishes Louise the very best for the future". 

The destination of her next club is not yet known.
