Tobin Heath’s contract with Arsenal was mutually terminated at the end of April. The American player’s season was over before it began after she tore her hamstring a week earlier; her contract with the team was also slated to expire at the season’s conclusion.
The USWNT veteran, who has been with the club since September, leaves the London club after only 18 games and three goals. Heath, who is now 33 years old, has spent her whole club career playing in England, France, and the United States, and she is currently considering her next step.
Tobin said on the club’s website, “while I’m disappointed that my time at Arsenal has come to an early end, I have loved every minute of my time here.”
I’d want to express my gratitude to everyone at Arsenal for their kind welcome. This club and its players are truly unique, and I know they will achieve great things in the near future.
How did Tobin Heath do at Arsenal?
Heath, an admitted Arsenal fan for the rest of her life, signed with the Gunners in September after a disappointing stint with Manchester United.
The team is now in a title race in the Women’s Super League and is only one point behind leaders Chelsea with three matches remaining, although Heath has missed over half the season due to a series of muscular problems. Heath has already missed 15 games this season due to injury, and she will miss the last three league games after her departure.
Heath’s goals aren’t guaranteed to win games, but in this championship race, even one might make all the difference. Heath scored a goal for the Gunners in the nick of time against championship rivals Manchester City, resulting in a 1-1 tie.
Arsenal head coach Jonas Eidevall noted in a press release that he enjoyed working with Tobin this season. On and off the field, her positive attitude and strong character have been an inspiration to the rest of the team. We hope the best for Tobin and are forward to seeing what the future holds for her.
Where will Tobin Heath go next?
The 33-year-old has announced her immediate return to the United States, where she may continue her hamstring injury rehabilitation with the help of her own personal medical team.
Heath’s return to the domestic NWSL in the middle of the 2022 league season has sparked rumors of a potential resolution to the impasse that had previously surrounded her future.
Racing Louisville, an expansion team, had Heath’s rights after drafting her from the Portland Thorns in 2021. On the evening of June 14, The Equalizer reported that Louisville had traded Heath’s rights to OL Reign in exchange for $50,000 in allocation money and 2nd and 4th round draft picks.
