Manchester City striker Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw has signed a two-year contract extension to stay at the club until 2026.
The Jamaican, 26, initially joined the club from Bordeaux in 2021, scoring a total of of 50 goals since her arrival to confirm her status as one of the most prolific strikers in Europe.
In the 2022/23 season alone Shaw scored 31 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions, picking up several personal awards including City’s Player and Goal of the Season awards, numerous league and PFA Player of the Month successes and was named Concacaf Women’s Player of the Year.
On the International stage, Shaw helped the Reggae Girlz qualify for this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup and finish third in the Concacaf Women’s Championship.
Speaking after putting pen to paper on her new deal, Shaw said: “I’m delighted to continue my journey with this amazing group.
“Everyone made me feel welcome from the first day I came here.
“I enjoy the way we play and I’m at a stage now where I understand the way we play and I can only get better and grow.
“I think here at City is the perfect place for me. I put all my effort and time on the pitch and obviously for the position I play and the quality I have around me, I know I’m going to be in positions to score goals.
“I’ve always said Manchester feels like home away from home too.
“I enjoy coming into the City ground every day and training with the group, vibing with the girls and I also have family here, so Manchester has felt like home ever since I arrived.
“I just want to thank our fans for everything, all the love and support they’ve given me since I arrived. I’ll just try my best to continue repaying them on the football pitch.”
Head Coach Gareth Taylor added: “Bunny’s growth and development as a player over the past two years, but particularly this season, has been fantastic and we’re thrilled to see her extend her contract with us.
“She has thrived having had the opportunity of extended runs in the team throughout the current campaign and has shown on a regular basis what a talent she is and why we brought her to the Club.
“She scored goals regularly in France and America prior to joining us, and has now shown what she’s capable of in England too which says a lot about her ability.
“She is still a young player though who wants to improve and is hungry for success, and we’re only scratching the surface with her which is a very exciting prospect as we aim to develop her even further over the next three years.”
