City have continued to strengthen with the signing of England defender Gemma Bonner.
The centre-back becomes Nick Cushing’s third signing of the summer, following in the footsteps of Caroline Weir in making the move to Manchester from Merseyside, after a six-year spell at Liverpool.
Versatile, powerful in the air and comfortable in possession, the 26-year-old hopes to reach new heights with City, competing for trophies once again and making her return to Champions League action.
She also aspires to earn regular first-team appearances on the international front with Phil Neville’s England, having progressed through the youth ranks with the Lionesses to the senior squad.
“I’m really excited,” Bonner told ManCity.com. “It’s great to be part of such a special Club, who have been the leading team in the women’s game for a couple of years.
“With the players and the facilities the Club have and the opportunity to play at the top level on a regular basis in all four competitions, on the whole it’s something I want to be part of and I’m excited for it."
