Manchester United Women’s Emily Ramsey has signed a new deal with the club and joins Sheffield United on a loan for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.

The 19-year-old goalkeeper spent her youth career with United before returning when the women’s team formed in July 2018 and has made 4 appearances in all competitions for the club.

The England U-21 international said: “It’s an honour to sign a new contract at this club; from a young age Manchester United has been a big part of my life and to be here as part of a senior women’s team is a dream for me. I’m excited for what the future holds with this group of players and staff, and I just want to continue working hard and improving my game as much as possible.”

“I’m also looking forward to working with the coaches and players at Sheffield United, they are a great club and I know this experience will be really beneficial for my development over the next few months.”

Manchester United manager Casey Stoney said: “Emily is a talented young keeper with a bright future ahead of her so it’s great to have her sign a new deal at the club. We see the hard work and dedication she puts in every day during training and this loan move to Sheffield United will give her invaluable experience and playing time which is perfect for her development.”
