Head coach Hope Powell said, "It's very disappointing for Katie, who had come to the club in pre-season and settled in really well.

"We wish her all the best for the surgery and her rehabilitation and we will support her every step of the way in her recovery."

Robinson made her England under-17 debut in 2018 and scored England's third goal in a 6–0 win against Moldova. She has made 11 appearances for the under-17s and scored eight times.

Robinson previously made 17 Women's Super League appearances for Bristol City after coming through their academy.
