Manchester City Football Club is delighted to announce that Ellie Roebuck has signed a new three-year deal at the Academy Stadium.
The 21-year-old has become a key figure for City in recent seasons, figuring prominently throughout the 2019-20 campaign and securing the inaugural Barclays FA Women's Super League Golden Glove award.
Joining City in 2015 as a 15-year-old, the shot stopper signed her first professional contract with the club in January 2018 having made her professional debut as a substitute against Birmingham City two years previous.
Playing her part as the team won both the FA Continental Tyres League Cup and Women's FA Cup in 2018-19, the 2019-20 campaign saw the young keeper make her mark as she conceded just nine league goals in 16 games and kept ten clean sheets in the process.
Roebuck also impressed as City retained the Vitality Women's FA Cup in November 2020 following the continuation of the competition from the previous season.
Internationally, she has represented England on five occasions at senior level so far - making her senior debut against Austria in late 2018 - and was a training player in the Lionesses' 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup squad.
One of the game's most exciting young players, Roebuck has now signed a three-year deal that will see her remain at the Academy Stadium until the summer of 2024.
Speaking about her contract extension, Roebuck said: "I'm delighted to have signed a new deal. It's really exciting to know that my future lies at City for the next three years - my time here so far has flown by and I can't wait for what is to come.
"Signing a three-year deal too is something that's a massive boost - the Club have shown their faith in me, which is amazing.
"City is the place I want to be - it's where I see myself developing as a player, so I'm very happy to have it all sorted."
Head Coach Gareth Taylor said: "We are really pleased to secure Ellie's future with us and look forward to seeing her add to the continued success she has had so far here at Manchester City in the years to come."
Manchester City Women's Managing Director Gavin Makel added: "I'm delighted that Ellie has committed her future with the Club.
"Since she joined us as a teenager, we have seen just how hard she has worked to develop into the player that she is today.
"I know that she has the drive and hunger in wanting to continue to progress and I am excited to see what her future holds."
