Posted at 15:00h in News
Katrine Veje has announced that her time at Arsenal is over, the Denmark International confirmed late on Thursday evening on her Instagram account that she would be leaving the club this summer.
Veje joined the club from Montpellier in January 2019 and played 8 times and provided four assists in the league during the title winning 2018-19 season but struggled for game time in 2019-20 due to injury.
Veje last played for the Gunners on October 31, 2019 in their 8-0 Champions League thrashing of Czech side Slavia Prague at Meadow Park.
However, she then picked up an injury to her right-foot on international duty and therefore missed the rest of the season up until its suspension
She put on her Instagram account “My time with Arsenal has come to an end, I have had great moments in the club, and I want to thank my teammates, the staff, especially Joe, and the supporters of the club, thanks”.
Her new club was confirmed on Friday morning as she has returned to Swedish champions FC Rosengård who she previously played for between 2011 and 2013.
Veje had two years left on her current contract so the Gunners could receive a fee from the Swedish club as part of the deal.
She’s the fourth player to exit north London this summer following in the footsteps of Louise Quinn, Pauline Peyraud-Magnin and Silvana Flores.
Veje will be eligible to make her debut in Rosengård’s opening match of the season against Vittsjö on June 27.
A statement read on Arsenal.com on Friday morning “Everyone at Arsenal would like to thank Katrine for her contribution to the team’s success and wish her the best for the future”.
