England and Manchester City star defender Alex Greenwood has signed a contract extension with the club that will see her remain in the club until 2026. Greenwood, who came on as a substitute in the final when the Lionesses beat Germany to win Euro 2022 in July, joined Manchester City in 2020.

She also said: “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.” Manchester City sits fourth in the WSL and will travel to West Ham on 15 January, when the season resumes.
