England defender Lucy Bronze will leave Manchester City when her contract runs out at the end of June, the Women's Super League club announced on Thursday.

The 30-year-old rejoined City in 2020 after a spell with Lyon, having previously played for them from 2014 to 2017.

Bronze made 111 appearances in total for City, scoring 14 goals.

In her first City stint, the full-back helped the club win the Women's Super League, FA Cup and League Cup, and her second has included another triumph in both of the cup competitions.

"Manchester City would like to express their gratitude and thanks to Lucy for her contributions during her two spells at the club and wish her all the best for the future," the club said in a statement.

Following the end of their 2021/22 season, City had already announced end-of-contract departures including Bronze's international team-mate Georgia Stanway, who has joined Bayern Munich, and Scotland midfielder Caroline Weir, linked with Real Madrid.

Bronze, a Champions League winner in each of her three seasons with Lyon, was named Best FIFA Women's Player in 2020.
