Kiera Walsh pens new Manchester City contract.
Kiera Walsh has committed her future to Manchester City as she’s signed a new contract until 2025.
Walsh has picked up three Continental Cups, two Women’s FA Cups and a Women’s Super League title at City, with the tenacious midfielder also recognised internationally and earned her first England cap in November 2017.
It’s amazing,” Walsh said. “It’s important I’ve renewed my contract with the club I grew up supporting. It’s a special moment for me in my career.
“I still have to pinch myself a little bit sometimes when I’m in and around the building and in training. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be. I feel confident playing here, I seem to play well every game and the team are playing well.
“For me now, it’s about pushing on and taking ownership of other people’s games, helping them to improve – being more of a leader in the team. I’m really happy to have put pen to paper.”
Walsh has clocked up 142 appearances in sky blue, scoring five goals, including astrike in the 2019 FA Cup Final against West Ham.
Head of Women’s Football Gavin Makel said: “Over the last few seasons, Keira has more than shown what she is capable of and in that time, has become such an important part of the team.
“At only 22, she is producing performances that are far beyond her years and is developing not only into a world-class player, but a leader on and off the pitch, complementing the other strong voices we have within the squad.
“Keira’s signing is another statement of our intentions to remain competitive in the hunt for honours.”
Manchester City sit top of the league going into Sundays fixture away at West Ham.
