Manchester City have confirmed that midfielder Kiera Walsh has penned a new three-year contract to commit herself to the club until the summer of 2023.
The 22-year-old has blossomed into a vital player for City since making her debut as a 17-year-old back in July 2014, firing the Citizens to three Continental Cups, two Women's FA Cups and a Women's Super League title.
So happy to have extended my contract at the club I have supported my whole life @ManCity — Keira Walsh (@keira_walsh) February 7, 2020

“It’s amazing,” she 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.
“The team are in a good place at the top of the league and if we can keep going and keep the momentum rolling, there’s no reason why we can’t finish strongly at the end of the season.
“You naturally improve, playing with top players. I’ve played for City since I was 17, alongside the best players in the world. I’m quite lucky.
“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," Makel said.
“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.”
