CLASSY winger Sophie Van De Heuvel has informed Geelong that she will leave the club via expansion this off season.
Van De Heuvel was taken with draft pick No.2 ahead of Geelong's inaugural season in 2019 and has played 31 games across four seasons.
Womens.afl understands that Van De Heuvel will reunite with former Geelong AFLW assistant coach and VFLW head coach Natalie Wood at Essendon.
Van De Heuvel, a lifelong Essendon supporter, arrives at the NEC Hangar after 31 games for Geelong, where she made her mark as a versatile half-back.
Hailing from Ballarat in regional Victoria, the talented all-rounder also played cricket at the national level before transitioning to footy.
