Norway keeper Aurora Mikalsen will depart Women’s Super League club Manchester United at the end of this month when her contract expires.

Mikalsen joined the Red Devils in September 2019 and only made one appearance for the club this season which came in their 11-1 win over Leicester City in the Continental Cup.

Speaking about her departure, United manager Casey Stoney said: "I’d like to personally thank Aurora for her hard work and fantastic contribution this season. 

"She came in and showed great character alongside providing some real competition within our goalkeeping department during a tough season. 

“I have always said releasing players is one of the hardest parts of my job but I wish her all the best for the future."

The 24-year-old shot stopper has not yet confirmed a new club.
