Kim heading for Seattle
 Women's Football News 21 Nov 2013
 
Kim heading for Seattle - 21 Nov 2013 - Women's Football NewsStar midfielder Kim Little has left Arsenal and joined Seattle Reign on a long term contract. 
 
One of the finest players in the women's game, the 2012 FA Women's Super League top scorer and 2012-13 PFA Women's Player of the Year has made a fantastic contribution to Arsenal in her six years at the club.
 
Since breaking into the Gunners' senior side at 17, Little has helped the team to four league titles, three FA Cups and four League Cups.
 
The Scotland international now joins former Arsenal Ladies manager Laura Harvey at Seattle Reign, where she will play in the US National Women's Soccer League.
 
Arsenal general manager Vic Akers told www.arsenal.com: "Kim is an outstanding player. Her potential was clear when we first went to see her play as a teenager for Hibs, and we always believed she could be a world class talent.
 
"I'm pleased to say that's just what she's become. I'd like to thank her on behalf of the team for all that she's helped us to achieve in recent seasons, and wish her all the best for this new chapter in her career."
 
"Playing in America has always been an ambition of mine," Kim told Arsenal.com. "To get the opportunity to play in the professional league and work with Laura Harvey is my main reason for joining Seattle Reign.
 
"It's obviously very difficult to leave Arsenal - I've had a great six years here. I've worked with so many great players so it was a very difficult decision but it's one that I feel has been made at the right time.
 
"I've had a lot of great memories at Arsenal - probably too many to mention. Winning the Women's Super League title and the two cups last season are probably my highlights."
 
Despite missing out on the WSL title for the first time, Kim is confident that Gunners manager Shelley Kerr has enough quality in her squad to win the league next year. "We've won the league so many occasions," she said. "The club definitely has the ambition and the opportunity to come back and win the league next year and I'm sure that's what they will do."
