The 21-year-old joined Albion from Chelsea in January 2017 and played a key role as Albion Ladies finished second in WSL 2 in the 2017/18 season.

Legg made eight appearances for Brighton this season, with her final game the 2-0 defeat to Manchester United in the SSE Women's FA Cup last month.

Albion’s women’s first-team manager Hope Powell said: “Jenna leaves the club having played a huge part in our recent success, and her contribution will not be forgotten.

"Her attitude and professionalism has been excellent, and she has been a pleasure to work with during my time here.

“On behalf of everyone at the club, I would like to wish her all the very best for the future.”
