On Twitter, she said: "@alexmorgan13a true pioneer for the women’s game. Thank you for everything over the past few months you’ve been amazing.

"Going to miss being your ultra competitive partner. Keep smashing it Al!"

Speaking about her time with Tottenham, Morgan said: "I will be forever grateful to the club, my team-mates and Spurs supporters for taking such good care of me and my family.

"Thank you to everyone who helped make this chapter in my soccer journey so special… COYS."
