Manchester City have announced that Khiara Keating has signed a contract extension. The deal will keep the goalkeeper in Manchester until at least 2027. The 19-year-old has started all six of City’s league games so far this campaign.

After moving to the club almost eight years ago, Keating has risen through the Sky Blues ranks. The academy graduate joined City’s senior squad in 2022 — forming a key part of the League Cup-winning side.

The goalkeeper recently received her first England call-up in October, as England faced Belgium in the UEFA Women’s Nations League.

Comments on Keating’s contract extension

Speaking about her contract extension, Keating said: “I’ve enjoyed every moment of the last eight years at this special club. Being a Manchester City player makes myself and my family proud every single day. The opportunities I have had have been a dream come true. To know I’m going to be here, my home, until 2027 is fantastic. Anything is possible with this team, and with the fans behind us, I’m looking forward to seeing what the next few years bring.”

Head Coach Gareth Taylor added: “We’re really pleased that Khiara has extended her stay with the club. The impact she has had on and off the pitch is clear to see and we are very happy that Khiara will be here until 2027. She has more than proven her worth during her career so far, and we’re looking forward to seeing what more she can achieve here at City.”

Director of Football Nils Nielsen continued: “I am really happy that a talented young player like Khiara has decided to commit her future to our club. It’s been a real pleasure seeing her develop, and I’m sure it will be a long and fruitful partnership. The sky is the limit for Khiara, and I’m excited to see what more she can achieve here at City in the coming years.”
