Manchester City Women’s Ellen White has signed a two-year contract extension, having scored 24 goals in 55 appearances so far.

White told mancity.com: “I’m delighted to have everything sorted. I’ve really enjoyed the last two seasons and I’m excited for what the future holds for this team and to be a part of it.

“We’ve got some really talented players here and I’ve really enjoyed working with Gareth [Taylor], so I can’t wait to continue that journey for the next couple of years – it was a really easy decision for me.

“I still want to develop too as a player – I’m 32, but I still want to learn and get better. I’m surrounded by a great group of players who constantly push each other to improve in a competitive environment.

“We’ve already won the FA Cup, but we don’t want to sit back – I really want to help the team to achieve some big things in the coming years and that’s a big part of the reason that I’ve committed my future to this club.”

Gareth Taylor, Head Coach, added: “Ellen has been a top leader for us – she’s led the line not only on the pitch, but in the dressing room as well.

“Her work ethic and everything she does is about her profession – she’s been a top person to work with as well, a real shining light and she’s the perfect example to young players of what it takes to get to the very top of the game.

“We’re delighted to have her with us and we feel very lucky to be able to have her experience and quality for the next couple of years.”
