Kuala Lumpur: China PR international Wang Shuang leaves Paris Saint-Germain having learnt much and will, if the opportunity arises, play abroad again.

The 2018 AFC Women's Player of the Year mutually agreed with the French club to terminate her contract despite still having a year to go and is expected to sign for a Chinese side.

Speaking to Chinese media, Wang said: "I cannot go further with PSG, but I'm grateful for PSG giving me the opportunity to step onto a big stage of life, to let more people know me, and to let me have bigger future."

The midfielder signed a two-year deal with PSG last August and joined the club a month later.

She made 27 appearances for PSG, scoring eight goals and setting up seven assists as they won the Ligue 1 championship and reached the quarter-finals of UEFA Champions League.

She was named AFC Women's Player of the Year in November 2018, becoming the fourth Chinese player to win the award.

It’s time to say good-bye.
It has been a wonderful year which was full of surprises and challenges, though sometimes it was a little hard.
Paris has been part of my life.Merci.❤️@PSG_Feminines @PSG_inside

She was also part of the squad at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, where China PR's campaign ended in the Round of 16.

"I am a very determined player, I am not satisfied with my performance in this World Cup. In the next four years, I hope I can better seize the opportunity when the next World Cup comes round."

"We can also see from the World Cup that women's football is developing so fast and the level is getting higher and higher," Wang said.
