RUESHA LITTLEJOHN LOOKS set for a fresh start at club level after parting company with Birmingham City.

The Republic of Ireland international joined the Women’s Super League side last January following a spell at Leicester City.

She went on to make 11 appearances, with the club announcing in June that the midfielder had been offered a new contract.

However, Littlejohn is in line to continue her career elsewhere after Birmingham City announced her departure in a brief statement issued this afternoon. 

It reads: “Blues can confirm Ruesha Littlejohn has left the club. We would like to thank Ruesha for her efforts, and wish her the very best for the future.”

Littlejohn has featured prominently for Ireland since Vera Pauw’s reign as manager began in October 2019.
