Manchester City have announced that captain Steph Houghton has signed a new deal with the club.

The 33-year-old has missed much of this season through injury but returned to play for the first time since September last week.

“I’m delighted to sign an extension here at City,” she said.

“Once the talks started, there was only ever going to be one outcome and it was the easiest decision I’ve ever made, to commit my future to this football club and continue on this unbelievable journey.

“It’s been a really good week with me making my comeback from injury too – it’s been a really tough four months, but I’m just so happy to be back on the pitch now.

“The eight years I’ve been here so far have flown by – when people say how long it is, I really can’t believe it! For me though, it’s always been about being at Manchester City and being a part of this Club, for now and for the future.”

Houghton, who has 120 England caps to her name, has won eight trophies during her time at the club, including three WSL titles.
