Steph Houghton has extended her stay at Manchester City Women until 2022.
The City Women and England captain has been at the club since 2014, making over 160 appearances in Sky Blue. City take on United Women in Saturday's FA Cup fourth round.
The 31-year-old arrived from Arsenal, going on to win the FA Women's Super League, two Women's FA Cups and three Continental Cups.
Also an MBE, Houghton has 117 England caps, leading the Lionesses to the semi-finals at the 2019 World Cup.
Speaking after signing her contract extension, Houghton said: “This is my Club and I’ve enjoyed so many amazing memories here so far, winning trophies and with the players I’ve played with and manager I’ve worked under.
“I’ve seen the Club from the beginning – back when we only had five professional players – and I’ve seen it grow to be the best Club in England and if not Europe.
“I came here with the intention of winning trophies, bettering myself as an individual and a player, playing for a team who plays good football and could be the best in England. I believe this Club can go as far as it wants to go.
“Both on and off the pitch, the Club has developed me as a player and a person, having the people we have around us, the unbelievable facilities and Stadium. It’s a special place for me and my family live in Manchester now. It was a pretty easy decision.
“My only thought was to have my future here for the next few years and I’m really happy.”
Head of Women’s Football Gavin Makel added: “We are thrilled that Steph has committed her future to Manchester City.
“She has been an integral member of not only the team, but the Club as a whole since our reformation six years ago and her efforts go well beyond her performances on the pitch.
“Her leadership skills are second to none and she never fails to amaze everybody here at Manchester City with her passion, drive and hunger to improve.”
