German club 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam has agreed to terminate Matildas midfielder Elise Kellond-Knight contract with immediate effect.
Potsdam confirmed late last night (AEDT) they and Kellond-Knight had gone their separate ways.
It comes after the 27-year-old, who joined Potsdam in 2015 after leaving the Brisbane Roar, only extended her contract until 2019 last year.
"My time in Potsdam was an unforgettable experience and I will be forever grateful that I have met so many great people here," said Kellond-Knight.
"Turbine will always have a place in my heart, but for me it's time to go home, to Australia.
"My goal is to play again in the Australian professional league, because I think that there are many positive steps going on there right now and I would like to be part of it," she said.
However, as the W-League season came to end on Sunday, it looks as though Kellond-Knight could be looking to the NWSL.
.@elise_kk8: „Turbine will always have a place in my heart but it’s time to return home. There’s a lot of positive development going on there and I’d like to be a part of it.“ But since the season is already over she added: „I might also play in the NWSL.“— Jasmina Schweimler (@JasSchweimler) February 20, 2018
This is the third player to leave Potsdam this week as German WNT midfielder Tabea Kemme and Swiss WNT Lia Wälti choose not renew their expired contracts.
