ENGLAND WINGER Nikita Parris has signed a new contract with Women's Super League One club Manchester City until the end of the 2018-19 season, BBC Sport reports.

The 23-year-old has put pen to paper on a new deal, which will keep her at the Club until the end of the 2018/19 campaign.

Parris, who has clocked up 65 appearances in sky blue, scoring 25 goals, has helped Nick Cushing’s side to lift all three domestic trophies over the past year.

Speaking to ManCity.com, she said: “It feels amazing to have signed a new contract. It was never in doubt. I have a fighting desire and enthusiasm to play for and win trophies with this team.

“We have a lot of quality and a lot left to give. With the togetherness – the community spirit from the first-team men’s side to the under-9s girls – it’s a fantastic environment to be in.

“I’m just so happy to be here and to remain here for the coming seasons. I’ve been on a journey and it’s shaped me as a person.

“With the help of Nick and the coaching staff, I’ve really developed as a player. He was so enthusiastic about me staying. He said I’m a big part of this team and he wants me to carry on developing at this club, pushing my game on.

“He’s done that massively over the past three-and-a-half years. My trust is totally in him. He’s a fantastic coach – one of the best I’ve ever worked under.
