Midfielder Rachel Furness has left Liverpool by mutual consent.
The Northern Ireland international, 34, spent three seasons at the club after joining Reading in 2019, scoring 19 goals in 64 appearances.
Furness was vice-captain at Liverpool, helping the club to promotion to the WSL in 2022.
BBC Sport understands that she is close to joining the Championship from Bristol City.
“It’s always difficult to lose senior players. She’s a fantastic person and she’s been a great servant to the football club and she will be missed,” said Liverpool manager Matt Beard.
“There were a lot of clubs that were interested. There was a role here for her, but ultimately the opportunity came up for her to probably get some regular football and I think she borrowed. the path that suited him best.”
Sunderland-born Furness, who is Northern Ireland’s top scorer with 38 goals in 85 games, has stepped down from international duty in August but pointed out that she has not retired.
She was named the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year in Northern Ireland last December after helping the international team qualify for Women’s Euro 2022.
