Manchester City Women’s Republic of Ireland international left back, Megan Campbell has signed a new one-year contract with the club.

Campbell has made 42 appearances for the club and is currently recovering from a foot injury but insists she is more motivated than ever to achieve success, asserting the best is yet to come.

She told mancity.com: “When you’re injured, it’s always a difficult situation when you’re coming to the end of your contract and you’ve picked up an injury or a niggle but I’m glad City have given their full backing and support behind me to get back fit.”

“I’m progressing well,” she added. “I’m in constant contact with the Strength and Conditioning Coach and the Physio on Teams, Zoom and FaceTime – there are loads of outlets to keep in contact.

“I’m on track with where I need to be and I’m meeting with the surgeon soon so I’m looking forward to that to see what he thinks of my progress.”

City’s Head of Women’s Football Gavin Makel said of Campbell: “She has proven herself to be an integral member of our set-up in recent years and we’re thrilled that she has followed in the footsteps of a number of her teammates by putting pen to paper on an extension with the club.

“Despite her injury set-back at the start of 2020, the positive attitude and resolute determination she has shown during her rehab has been admirable and we look forward to her return to action alongside the rest of the squad in the upcoming 2020/21 Barclays FA Women’s Super League season.”
