Laura signs new Man City deal
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 19 May 2021
FA WSL news - Laura signs new Man City deal - 19 May 2021 - Women's Football NewsManchester City Football Club is delighted to announce that Laura Coombs has signed a two-year contract extension at the Academy Stadium.
A seasoned figure in the Barclays FA Women's Super League, the midfielder initially linked up with the Club in the summer of 2019 after departing Liverpool and has made 34 appearances in league and cup for City so far, scoring five goals.
The 29-year-old had previously played for Arsenal and Chelsea amongst a handful of loan spells with Nottingham Forest, Barnet and Los Angeles Strikers.
Also an England international having made her debut for the Lionesses in October 2015, she was a regular figure for the national team at youth level prior to her first senior call up.
A mainstay in the top flight of women's football in the UK, Coombs has now committed her immediate future to Manchester City by penning a new two-year deal with Gareth Taylor's side.
Speaking about her extension, she said: "It feels great to have signed a new contract here at City - it was an easy choice for me to make. I feel settled and happy, both on and off the pitch, so it was a natural decision for me to stay.
"It's an amazing environment to be a part of - we are treated like ultimate professionals and as players, we can't ask for anything more.
"In my first season, I felt as though it was a bit of an adjustment period for me but this past year, I think I've shown what I can bring to the team, both technically and tactically, and doing that within such a high quality squad has been amazing.
"Moving forward though, I'm determined to keep on developing and improving to help the team."
Gareth Taylor, Manchester City Women Head Coach, added: "I think Laura probably surprised a lot of people last season in terms of her own individual output and how well she has done.
"She's a very talented player and her quality and technical ability is impressive, while she's provided us with some memorable moments this year.
"The challenge for her will be to push for more game time next season - she has impressed hugely this term and we really believe in her and her quality.
"She's a great person to work with - she's very coachable, always wants to improve and I'm really looking forward to continuing that over the coming seasons."
City have also announced this week that American duo Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis are returning to their respective clubs at OL Reign and North Carolina Courage following the end of the season, whilst Megan Campbell will also be leaving the club.
