Super Falcons’ defender Ashleigh Plumptre departs Leicester City following contract expiration.

Super Falcons’ defender Ashleigh Plumptre’s exit from Leicester City has been confirmed by the club following the expiration of her contract with Leicester City.

“LCFC Women can confirm that defender Ashleigh Plumptre has left the Club following the expiration of her contract at King Power Stadium.”

Last season, she made 23 appearances for the Foxes and 79 appearances in her three years voyage with the City’s Blue.

Plumptre began her youthful career at Asfordby, where she secured a move to Leicester City after four years. She left the Foxes for Birmingham City, then to Derby County after one year of poor run. She played at Nott County and LA Galaxy before making a return to the Foxes in 2020 from the University of Southern California.

The defender also bid her emotional farewell to the club in the message she shared on Twitter.

Plumptre made her debut for the Super Falcons last year following her switching of national allegiances in favour of Nigeria – she has made 11 caps in the green white green colours since she pledged.

The club thanked the 25-year-old for her loyal service to them.

“LCFC Women would like to thank Ashleigh for her contribution during the last four seasons and wish her well in the next phase of her career.”
