Arsenal have announced that Anouk Hoogendijk has left the club to return to the Netherlands.
The Dutch international, who only signed for Arsenal in January has returned to Ajax, the club she left to sign for Arsenal.
While Arsenal themselves have given no reason as to why the highly-regarded player has left, it seems as if Hoogendijk was unhappy with the amount of playing time she had been given since arriving at the club.
She is believed to have been one of many players unhappy at the management style of manager Shelly Kerr who also left the club recently.
The ladies got their league campaign off to a poor start this season, failing to win any of their first four games. They did, however, get back to winning ways on Sunday when they defeated Liverpool 1-0 courtesy of a Casey Stoney goal. View the highlights of that game here.
