Manchester City defender Esme Morgan has signed a new three-year deal with the club.

The 21-year-old centre-back was set to become a free agent this summer but she will now remain with The Cityzens until the end of the 2024/2025 campaign.

FAWSL Full-Time were informed of Morgan’s new deal via an official Manchester City press release earlier today. The news comes off the back of last week’s announcement that captain Steph Houghton has signed a new deal at The Academy Stadium.

After signing on again with Manchester City, Morgan said “I’m so excited to sign a new contract. I’ve been a City fan my whole life and it’s no secret that I’ve got intentions of staying here for a long time.

“The decision to extend my contract felt like the perfect one for me to make at this time in my career as I continue to develop and hopefully push on to be a more regular player for City in an amazing environment.

“Having my injury this season and being more of a fan myself again has reignited my desire to get back playing and when that happens, it’ll probably feel like my debut all over again.

“In my mind, when I make my comeback, it’ll be starting a new journey and a new chapter in my time at this Club and I can’t wait to pull the shirt back on and play in front of our fans again.”

Morgan featured in Manchester City’s first four games this season before sustaining a leg fracture in the 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in September. The player now has her sights firmly set upon returning to full fitness in the not-so-distant future.
