Halimatu Ayinde was signed by the American team Western New York Flash on 15 June 2015 from the Nigerian domestic team Delta Queens. She made her debut with a start in the 1–0 loss against the Houston Dash; she was substituted in the 79th minute. After spending a season with the team, during which time she made nine appearances, including five in the starting lineups, she was released on 12 May 2016. She had admitted underperforming in her first season with the Flash, but felt that she had improved in the 2016 preseason, scoring against the A team put forward by the University of Vermont. At the time this affected her selection for the Nigeria women’s national football team, with Ayinde not being selected for a match against Senegal.

She joined FC Minsk of the Belarusian Premier League later that year, making her debut in the 3–0 victory over Bobruichanka Bobruisk on 2 September. She was one of three Minsk players to score in the match, and went on to appear for the team in their UEFA Women’s Champions League games. Her form continued in her first few games, scoring the only goal in an away match against Nadezhda SDJuShOR-7 Mogilev on her third match for Minsk.
