Manchester City defender Alex Greenwood has signed a three year contract extension to stay at the club until summer 2026.
England international Greenwood, 29, had spells with Everton, Notts County, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Lyon before arriving at the City Football Academy Stadium in September 2020.
And in two and a half years she has made 80 appearances in all competitions, scoring five times and wearing the captain’s armband several times for Gareth Taylor’s side.
The new contract comes after a spectacular year for Greenwood who has became a European Champion with England in an unforgettable summer for women’s football.
Greenwood said: “I’m really pleased to have my new deal sorted and it’s come at the perfect time – after a strong first half to the season, I can now just focus on the remainder of the campaign and the next three years.
“Feeling settled at a club for me is so important and I absolutely have that here at City, which is why I’ve signed such a long-term deal – I just love being here.
“I have a really good relationship with Gareth [Taylor] – we’ve worked together throughout my whole time here so far – and the way he wants us to play marries up exactly with how I want to personally, so it’s the perfect match for me.
“I hold myself to such high standards on a personal level, and I will go out and give 100% in every single game I play for this football club which I hope has been clear to see over the past two-and-a-half years.
“We’ve got a fantastic group of players this season – the togetherness in the squad is just spot on, and we’re in a really good place as a collective at the moment.
“We just want to keep winning football matches and trophies which is what we expect of ourselves here and it’s an exciting time to be at City, both now and for the future.”
Head Coach Gareth Taylor added: “We’re thrilled to have Alex sign a new deal here at the Club.
“She is an incredibly important member of the squad, and her experience has proven invaluable to not only herself, but those around her in the team over the past few seasons.
“Alex is a consummate professional and has proven throughout her career what a talent and asset she is to every team that she has played in.
“She is a key part of our plans for the future, and we look forward to continuing to work with her over the coming years.”
