Janine Van Wyk: Fortuna Hjorring part ways with Banyana Banyana captain

South Africa international Janine Van Wyk has announced she has terminated her contract with Danish club Fortuna Hjorring.

The 32-year-old joined the Danish side in August 2019 after ending her two-year stint with Houston Dash in November 2018, becoming the first South African woman to play football in Denmark.

However, Van Wyk failed to gain an opportunity to play for Fortuna as she struggled to recover from her knee injury suffered during South Africa's Cosafa Women's Cup triumph in the same month.
