Manchester United Women’s Millie Turner has signed a new contract with the club until the end of the 2021/22 season, with an option to extend for a further year.
The 24-year-old defender joined the club in 2018, and recently became the first player to reach 50 appearances for the team during the club’s opening game of the 2020/21 WSL season against Chelsea.
Turner also received her first senior England call-up today after she was named in the latest squad for the Lionesses’ September training camp at St George’s Park next week.
Millie Turner said: “I’m so happy to be signing a new contract; the club is like family and I want to thank Casey and the staff for believing in me. Making my 50th appearance at the weekend was such a proud moment for me, it’s a huge honour every time I pull on the shirt and I hope it’s just one of many milestones I can achieve here. I’m really looking forward to continuing this journey with my team, we’re hungry for success and I’m excited for what the future holds for us.”
Head coach Casey Stoney said: “Millie has been a solid figure in our back line for the last couple of years and I’m so pleased she has extended her stay with the club. She is always pushing herself and others, and aside from her obvious talent on the pitch, she is such a positive character to have in our environment and that really has an impact throughout the team. She has a fantastic work rate and attitude, and I’m looking forward to continuing our work with her.”
