Chelsea boss Emma Hayes said on Engman’s departure: “That equaliser at Brighton has gone a long way to securing another league title for us.

“I know Adelina hasn’t had the best couple of years, due to injury, but she’s made telling contributions when they mattered. She’s been a great team-mate off the pitch, a pleasure to coach, and I look forward to seeing her career progress at her new club.”
