RC Deportivo announced that Ainoa Campo would be joining their ranks next season on her birthday, June 17th. Ainoa was one of the most remarkable players this season, as highlighted by the fact that only Sofia Jakobsson has had more playing time than her (1919 minutes vs 1852). While being a defensive midfielder, she mostly played as a center back. Tacón had Aurelie Kaci and Thaisa in midfield but were lacking a center back with quality on the ball, and Ainoa fit the bill perfectly.
Last week, Osinachi Ohale announced her departure via Instagram and Twitter. A central defender by nature, she added height, and physicality to CD Tacon’s backline.

Me gustaría agradecer a todas las personas en el club y especialmente a los aficionados por todo el apoyo y amor recibido durante esta temporada. Ha sido increíble.

I would like to say thanks to everyone at the club and to the fans for all the support and love you have given me this year. It has been amazing. As for my followers, I will let you know my next step in the very near future. ❤
Training rights trial
There is an ongoing judicial battle between the AFE (the footballers union) and ACFF (the clubs association) about the training rights of 17 U-23 players. Players like Maite Oroz, Eva Navarro, Ona Batlle, and Damaris Egurrola, who were all linked with a move to Real Madrid Femenino, are a part of this list. The agreement in place demands any Spanish club to pay a certain amount to sign these young players and the list includes some absurd quantities for certain players like 500,000€ for Ona Batlle or Eva Navarro.
The trial for the same was going to be held in late June but has since been postponed to July 17th, which almost certainly means that no Spanish club will be able to sign those players at least until that date, although the players can move abroad for free. The affected players and other important figures of the Spanish national team have shared a statement expressing their disagreement with this clause.
