Manchester City winger Lauren Hemp has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract that promises to keep her at the Etihad Campus until the summer of 2024.

Hemp joined the CItyzens from Bristol City in 2018 and is the reigning PFA Women’s Young Player of the Year, an award she has won three times in the last four seasons.

90min recently ranked Hemp as the fifth best WSL player of 2021.

The 21-year-old is also a blossoming international star with the Lionesses, scoring four times in the 20-0 thrashing of Latvia in November, and is set to be a key player at Euro 2022 in the summer.

“I’m delighted to have signed a contract extension here at City,” Hemp told the club’s official website.

“It’s a club where we’re constantly competing for trophies and success.

“I’ve already enjoyed some amazing moments here since joining three-and-a-half years ago, and I know that there is much more to come from this team.

“I’m surrounded by some of the best players and coaching staff in the world, and having them around me will only help to develop me even further over the coming years.”

City boss Gareth Taylor said: "We're absolutely thrilled that Lauren has committed herself to this club for another two years. She is one of the game's brightest young talents, is an absolute pleasure to work with and has a very exciting future ahead of her.

"We're only just scratching the surface with her at 21 years old and that's an incredible thought given what she has achieved so far in her short career, but she's also still learning from everyone here at City. We can't wait to see what the next couple of years hold for us as a team and her as a player."
