Demi Stokes signs contract extension with Man City Women

Manchester City’s Demi Stokes has signed a one-year contract extension with the 31-year-old on 199 appearances for the club.

A European Championship winner with England last summer, the full-back has lifted seven trophies during her time in Manchester so far and was also named in back-to-back PFA Women’s Super League Teams of the Year in 2018 and 2019 respectively.

And following the conclusion of the 2022/23 campaign, Stokes has put pen to paper on a deal that will see her remain a City player until the summer of 2024.

Speaking about her contract extension, she said: “I’m really happy to have signed a new deal and I can’t wait to get going again.

“Given how last season was for me personally, I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity to keep doing what I love doing, and that’s playing for Manchester City.

“It was a difficult season for me last year, but I feel like this will be a reset button that will allow me to kick on. I’ll be working hard throughout the summer on everything, and I’m really looking forward to next season.”

Head Coach Gareth Taylor added: “We’re really pleased that Demi has extended her stay with the Club.

“Her experience is hugely valued here at Manchester City, and although this past season has been a little up and down for her on the pitch, she has remained an important part of our team behind-the-scenes.

“The impact she has had on the Club since joining in 2015 is clear to see, and almost 200 appearances speaks volumes about what she has achieved so far in a City shirt.

“She still has a lot to offer and we’re really looking forward to continuing our work together.”
