It was reported by The Sydney Morning Herald in late July that Heyman was among seven players who would not be returning to Canberra for the upcoming season. 

Grace Maher has already confirmed her departure and so has the club. 

Heyman, who is the all-time W-League leading scorer, departs the club after eight seasons, which included 51 goals, a Golden Boot, three Premierships and two Championships.

“I am leaving Canberra United with an extremely heavy heart,” she said. 

“The city and the club have been my home for so long and I will forever be in debt for both of these for shaping me as a player and also as a person.

“I would especially like to thank Heather Reid for her tireless work both for Canberra United but also for women in sport more broadly.  I want to also thank the amazing CU supporters – they made me feel so welcomed and loved. 

“Playing at McKellar Park with the sun on my back in front of our loyal fans was always my happy place – it will be hard to do it in different colours however I hope you understand my decision to leave. 

“To all of the other teammates and coaches over the journey, I thank you and I promise I will never forget you," she said.

Heyman made 93 appearances for Canberra, including her 100th W-League appearance last season.
