Manchester City winger Lauren Hemp has signed a two-year contract extension with the club.
Hemp, 21, has featured 81 times for City since signing from Bristol City in 2018.
The England international has scored 28 goals for her club as well as four goals in 12 games for her country.
After penning her new deal, Hemp said: “I’m delighted to have signed a contract extension here at City.
“It’s a club where we’re constantly competing for trophies and success — I’ve already enjoyed some amazing moments here since joining three-and-a-half years ago, and I know that there is much more to come from this team.
“I’m surrounded by some of the best players and coaching staff in the world, and having them around me will only help to develop me even further over the coming years.”
Gareth Taylor, City’s head coach, added: “We’re absolutely thrilled that Lauren has committed herself to this club for another two years.
“She is one of the game’s brightest young talents, is an absolute pleasure to work with and has a very exciting future ahead of her.
“We’re only just scratching the surface with her at 21 years old and that’s an incredible thought given what she has achieved so far in her short career, but she’s also still learning from everyone here at City.
“We can’t wait to see what the next couple of years hold for us as a team and her as a player.”
City sit sixth in the Women’s Super League with 13 points, seven points outside the Champions League places.
