Manchester United Women currently sit top of the WSL table, one point clear of Arsenal and three ahead of Chelsea, although the Blues have a game in hand.

It’s impressive progress from the club given it’s only their second season in the top division. At the weekend they drew 2-2 with neighbours Manchester City, coming back from 2-0 to take a point.

Manager Casey Stoney was still left disappointed, believing her side should have gone on to take all three points from the match. Things are certainly looking positive for Manchester United, yet their progress and comparative strength hasn’t worked out well for everyone involved.

Lotta Ökvist has been struggling to get minutes on the pitch and the situation has got so bad that the defender now wants to leave the club, according to a report from Fotbollskanalen.

Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC is the desired destination and that would allow Ökvist to get more prominence in Sweden and subsequently help the 23-year-old with her aim of really breaking through with the Swedish national side.

Fotbollskanalen approached Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC for comment on the potential signing from Manchester United but were unable to get a direct quote.
