Manchester City Football Club has announced that Jamaican forward Khadija Shaw has signed a two-year contract extension.
The striker who joined City on an initial three-year contract in the summer of 2021 from Bordeaux will now remain at the Academy Stadium until the summer of 2026 after putting pen to paper on a new deal.
The Jamaican was in scintillating form in 2022/2023, scoring 31 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions, alongside securing numerous personal accolades including City’s Player and Goal of the Season awards, numerous league and PFA Player of the Month successes and being named CONCACAF Women’s Player of the Year.
Her efforts this term have seen her rack up 50 goals in total for Gareth Taylor’s side since she arrived in England two summers ago, with her having firmly established herself as one of the most prolific forwards in Europe.
Also making waves on the international stage with her homeland, Shaw helped the Reggae Girlz qualify for this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup and finish third in the CONCACAF Women’s Championship.
And following the conclusion of the domestic season, the 26-year-old has committed her future to Manchester City with a two-year extension to her current deal.
Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea are all after the signature of Aston Villa goalkeeper Hannah Hampton per Emma Sandy.
