Icelandic forward ends Reading stay to return home

Reading forward Rakel Honnudottir will return home to Iceland with immediate effect according to official club sources.

The 30-year-old Icelandic international striker joined The Royals in January but leaves the Berkshire club less than a year into her Reading career.

It has been revealed that Honnudottir has agreed to rejoin former club Breidablik where she spent five years prior to spells on the continent with Swedish side IF Limhamn Bunkeflo and latest club Reading.

During her time at Adams Park, Honnudottir brought bags of international experience to Kelly Chambers’ squad, although the player struggled for goals in the FA Women’s Super League. The striker has failed to find the back of the net this season while her last league outing came as a 77th-minute substitute in Reading’s 2-0 defeat at Manchester United in late October.

Honnudottir made her 100th senior international appearance for Iceland in September as Jon Por Hauksson’s side defeated Slovakia 1-0. The player’s tally of nine goals leaves her as her country’s joint-13th all-time top scorer while she needs 32 caps to equal the record for the nation’s most capped player.

The striker is set to link-up with new club Breidablik following the winter break with the club set to return to action in mid-January.
