Oshoala leaves Arsenal Ladies to join Chinese side Asisat Oshoala

Abuja – Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala has left Women’s Super League One club Arsenal Ladies in England to join Chinese side Dalian Quanjian.

The 22-year-old won the BBC’s Women’s Footballer of the Year Award in 2015 before joining Arsenal from Liverpool.

She helped the Gunners win the Women’s FA Cup at Wembley in May and recently won the 2016 African Women’s Player of the Year Award.

This included the SSE Women’s FA Cup win at Wembley Stadium.

She was part of the Nigerian team which won the African Women’s Cup of Nations in December.

Arsenal Ladies FC, in a reaction to Oshoala’s departure, praised the player for her services.

“We will like to thank Asisat for her contributions to Arsenal Ladies during the 2016 season and wish her well in her upcoming move, which is subject to the completion of the player’s registration process.’’
