Nikki Stanton announced today she won’t be coming back to the Chicago Red Stars for the 2020 season.

Instead, she’s heading to Europe. Stanton announced on her Instagram she’s signing with Klepp in Norway.

She spent two years in Chicago, and left fans this morning with a nice goodbye note on Twitter.

It’s bittersweet for Red Stars supporters, but the move isn’t surprising. Stanton is in a relationship with former Red Stars striker Sam Kerr, who is now playing at Chelsea. So, this makes a ton of sense for Stanton’s personal life.
