Man City Women's Alex Greenwood signs contract extension

Manchester City’s Alex Greenwood has signed a three-year contract extension and will now remain at the club until the summer of 2026.

One of the WSL’s longest standing figures, boasting spells with Everton, Notts County, Liverpool and Manchester United on her CV alongside a trophy-filled stint with Lyon, the 29-year-old has been a stalwart for Gareth Taylor’s side over the past two-and-a-half seasons.

Racking up 80 appearances in all competitions and captaining the side on numerous occasions, the defender has also found the back of the net five times during her time here so far.

Speaking after signing on the dotted line, Greenwood said: “I’m really pleased to have my new deal sorted and it’s come at the perfect time – after a strong first half to the season, I can now just focus on the remainder of the campaign and the next three years.

“Feeling settled at a club for me is so important and I absolutely have that here at City, which is why I’ve signed such a long-term deal – I just love being here.

“I have a really good relationship with Gareth [Taylor] – we’ve worked together throughout my whole time here so far – and the way he wants us to play marries up exactly with how I want to personally, so it’s the perfect match for me.”

Head Coach Gareth Taylor added: “We’re thrilled to have Alex sign a new deal here at the Club.

“She is an incredibly important member of the squad, and her experience has proven invaluable to not only herself, but those around her in the team over the past few seasons.

“Alex is a consummate professional and has proven throughout her career what a talent and asset she is to every team that she has played in.

“She is a key part of our plans for the future, and we look forward to continuing to work with her over the coming years.”
