Manchester City Women’s Chloe Kelly signs contract extension

Man City's Chloe kelly signs new contract

Manchester City Women’s forward Chloe Kelly has signed a three-year contract extension at the Academy Stadium.

The 24-year-old scored 16 goals in 34 games before her 2020/21 campaign was ended by an ACL injury, from which she is nearing a return.

Kelly told “I’m over the moon to finally put pen to paper on a new deal. I’m really happy with the way I’ve started my time here at City, and long may that continue.”

“During my rehabilitation, this has been a time where I’ve learnt so much about myself off the pitch too.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Gareth [Taylor] as well – he’s really brought out the best in me so far and especially during my first season, he gave me the confidence I needed to thrive as a player.

Head coach Gareth Taylor added: “Having Chloe sign an extension with us is fantastic news – given that we’ve been without her this season, her upcoming return will be like having a new signing and that’s such an exciting prospect with a player of her calibre.

“She’s an unbelievable talent, as she showed during her first season here, and is a player with a very bright future ahead of her. We’ve definitely only scratched the surface of what she has to offer so far.

“Her commitment and dedication, whether that be on the pitch or during her rehabilitation, is clear to see and I’m thrilled that we’ll have the opportunity to continue to work with her and hopefully enjoy success together in the years to come.”
