She was part of the side that won the Women’s FA Cup for the first time in their history in May.However, United finished fifth in the WSL, 20 points behind champions Chelsea, and missed out on a Champions League place.Speaking in the wake of that FA Cup win, Earps emphasised that she would be taking plenty of time over her decision, adding that she did not “want to make an emotional decision”, but that discussions were ongoing.
