Manchester City and England defender Alex Greenwood has signed a three-year contract extension with the Women’s Super League side.

The 29-year-old is now committed to City through to the summer of 2026, having joined in 2020 after leaving Lyon.

She has made 80 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring five goals, captaining the side on a number of occasions and helping them win the FA Cup and League Cup.

Greenwood, part of England’s Euros-winning squad over the summer, said: “I’m really pleased to have my new deal sorted and it’s come at the perfect time. After a strong first half to the season, I can now just focus on the remainder of the campaign and the next three years.

“Feeling settled at a club for me is so important and I absolutely have that here at City, which is why I’ve signed such a long-term deal – I just love being here.


“I have a really good relationship with (City manager) Gareth (Taylor). The way he wants us to play marries up exactly with how I want to personally, so it’s the perfect match for me.”

Taylor said: “We’re thrilled to have Alex sign a new deal here at the club. 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.

“Alex is a consummate professional and has proven throughout her career what a talent and asset she is to every team that she has played in.

“She is a key part of our plans for the future, and we look forward to continuing to work with her over the coming years.”
