Arsenal midfielder Jill Roord has joined Frauen Bundesliga powerhouse Wolfsburg after two seasons with the Gunners. Roord joined Arsenal from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2019 and scored 15 goals for the club.
Roord started the season excellently with back-to-back hat-tricks against Reading and West Ham in the first two WSL games of the season. She also scored a hat-trick against Gillingham in the FA Cup.
Good luck in the future, @JillRoordNL 👊
Thanks for everything! ❤️
