In women’s football in the USA, a “restricted free agent” is a player whose contract has expired with their current team, but they are not entirely free to sign with any other team.

The restrictions typically include the original team having the right to match any offer the player receives from another team, or receiving compensation if the player signs elsewhere.

This arrangement is a common feature in collective bargaining agreements in leagues, aiming to balance player freedom with team rights.

The image, which seems to feature Fox, was quickly remove from Getty, but not before Arsenal sleuths had spotted it.
