England forward Toni Duggan has left Barcelona after two seasons with the club.

The 27-year-old, currently preparing for a third-place play-off at the Women’s World Cup in France, scored 29 goals in 72 matches for the Spanish club, winning the Copa de la Reina and the Copa Catalunya Femenina.

“It was a dream come true to wear the famous colours of FC Barcelona,” said Duggan, who started her career at Everton before moving to Manchester City.

“To represent one of the biggest and most special clubs in the world has been a huge honour – but I feel the time is right for me to pursue a new challenge.

“Together with my team-mates and, of course, the wonderful supporters, I was able to win two trophies and enjoy many other memorable moments.

“A great many people have helped me over the last two years and I want to thank them all – you will always be in my heart.”

Duggan’s new club will be announced in the near future.
