Manchester City goalkeeper Khiara Keating has signed a three year contract extension that will keep her at the Joie Stadium until 2027.
Keating, who turned professional in 2022, helped the club lift the Continental Tyres Cup that season after making her debut in a 5-0 win over Leicester City in January of that year before going on to make her WSL bow in a 3-0 away victory at Aston Villa the week after.
The 19-year-old started all six Barclays Women’s Super League fixtures this season and also received her first England senior call-up in October for two UEFA Women’s Nations League matches against Belgium.
Speaking about her contract extension, she said: “I’ve enjoyed every moment of the last eight years at this special club. Being a Manchester City player makes myself and my family proud every single day.
“The opportunities I have had have been a dream come true and to know I’m going to be here, my home, until 2027 is fantastic.
“Anything is possible with this team, and with the fans behind us I’m looking forward to seeing what the next few years bring.”
Head Coach Gareth Taylor added: “We’re really pleased that Khiara has extended her stay with the Club.
“The impact she has had on and off the pitch is clear to see and we are very happy that Khiara will be here until 2027.
“She has more than proven her worth during her career so far, and we’re looking forward to seeing what more she can achieve here at City.”
Director of Football Nils Nielsen continued: “I am really happy that a talented young player like Khiara has decided to commit her future to our Club.
“It’s been a real pleasure seeing her develop and I’m sure it will be a long and fruitful partnership.
“The sky is the limit for Khiara and I’m excited to see what more she can achieve here at City in the coming years.”
