City are delighted to announce England stars Izzy Christiansen and Jill Scott have signed new deals.

The pair, who joined the Club ahead of its debut in the top flight back in 2014, have played key roles in the Blues’ success.

Both midfielders have witnessed the extraordinary transformation from Super League newcomers to reigning domestic treble winners and Champions League semi-finalists.

Christiansen famously netted in the 2014 Continental Tyres Cup final – City’s first piece of major silverware – while Scott bagged crucial strikes as Nick Cushing’s side secured a respectable finish in their maiden WSL campaign.

The duo also played pivotal parts as the Blues completed the 2015 season with a top-two finish and a Champions League spot for the first time. Christiansen scored six times in the final seven games and would go on to claim the PFA Players’ Player of the Year the following spring.

Last year heralded an incredible league and cup double, as City lifted their first championship title and their second Continental Tyres Cup. Christiansen continued her hot scoring streak, while Scott opened the scoring in the title-winning clash against rivals Chelsea and notably netted the Club’s first Champions League goal.

The Blues completed their collection of domestic trophies, claiming their third in succession with a stunning 4-1 FA Cup victory at Wembley, in which both Christiansen and Scott wrote their name onto the scoresheet.

During their time at City, Scott – who has earned more than 100 caps – has also helped England to a bronze medal at the 2015 World Cup, while Christiansen made her international debut. Both represented their country at the Euros in Holland over the summer.
