Zadorksy jojned the club in 2020 from NWSL team Orlando Pride. She initially signed on loan, before putting pen to paper on a permanent deal with the club in 2021.

She has made a total of 71 appearances for Spurs, even adorning the captain’s armband in the 21/22 season.

However she spent the second-half of this last season on loan to London rivals West Ham.

Though it is looking likely, it is yet to be confirmed whether she will sign permanently for the Hammers.

31-year-old Petzelberger signed on for Spurs in summer 2022.

The German midfielder never really found her footing at the club as a mainstay in the starting XI and only made 17 appearances across the last two seasons.

She did however score one goal for Spurs in a 3-0 win over Southampton in the Conti Cup earlier this year.

After four years at Brighton Hove and Albion, 25-year-old Ellie Brazil arrived in N17 during the 2022/23 season.

It was a signing that never really came to fruition, as she only made nine appearances across the last two campaigns.

It is unclear what her next move will be.

Ria Percival

Ria Percival has spent five seasons at Tottenham, and was once a big component of the Lilywhite’s midfield.

She has made 70 appearances in a Spurs shirt, scoring six goals during her time at the club.

On the international stage, the 34-year-old is New Zealand’s most capped player, but had a big injury at the end of last season that kept her out for a while.

She spent the back half of this season on loan to Crystal Palace.

Asmita Ale

Twenty-two year old Asmita Ale signed as a young fullback for the club in 2021. She joined from Aston Villa, and made 44 appearances across the last three seasons.

In January this year, she joined fellow WSL club Leicester City on loan for the remainder of the season.

Gracie Pearse

Pearse is a 21-year-old defender who graduated from the Arsenal academy before joining North London rivals Spurs.

Whilst at the club, she has been sent on loan spells to Bristol City, where she helped the Robins to promotion last season, and most recently, Charlton Athletic.

She has only made five senior appearances in Lilywhite. It is unclear whether she opted for a move, or if the club declined to offer her a new contract.

Nikola Karczewska

Karczewska arrived at Tottenham from FC Fluery ahead of the 2022/23 season.

The Poland international made 19 appearances last season and scored four goals. However when Bethany England and Martha Thomas both arrived at the club, she lost all chance of a starting spot.

The 24-year-old was sent of loan to Bayer Leverkusen for the entirety of the 2023/24 season, where she scored ten goals.
