Ji So-Yun, having played more than 200 games for Chelsea leaves the Blues at the end of the season.

She is heading back to her South Korean homeland.

The Chelsea midfielder will continue with the Blues for the remainder of the season.

Ji has been a pivotal member of Emma Hayes’ side, scoring 68 career goals at the club across 208 appearances so far

The 31-year-old has 37 WSL goals to her name.

Remarkably, Ji has been a part of each of the 11 major trophies the club has won in the WSL era, becoming a champion of England five times including the Spring Series, taking home the FA Cup three times and also securing two Continental Cup wins and one Community Shield.

Emma Hayes said: ‘What an honour and a privilege it’s been to coach one of the most amazing players the WSL has ever seen. There’s no question she’s been the most successful player from outside our league.

"Ji’s helped the club grow on and off the pitch and she’s a fabulous character who will be sorely missed. I will miss her terribly and I’m so grateful for everything she’s done for everyone at the football club. We are in a much better place because of it."
