Manchester City have announced that defender Alex Greenwood has signed a three year contract extension. The deal will see the England international remain in Manchester until at least 2026. Greenwood joined the Blues from Lyon in 2020 shortly after claiming the Champions League title with the French giants.
The No.5 has made 80 appearances for Gareth Taylor’s side, bagging herself 5 goals in the process. The 29 year old was also a key part of the Lionesses Euro’s victory this past summer.
Speaking to Manchester City about the new deal Greenwood 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 hold myself to such high standards on a personal level, and I will go out and give 100% in
every single game I play for this football club which I hope has been clear to see over the past
two-and-a-half years. We’ve got a fantastic group of players this season – the togetherness in the squad is just spot on, and we’re in a really good place as a collective at the moment.”
City head coach Gareth Taylor shared Greenwood’s sentiments about securing the defender’s long term future at the club. “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.”
