Megan Campbell talks about fitness, her new deal and the future...


Manchester City are delighted to announce Megan Campbell has put pen to paper on a new contract.

The Republic of Ireland defender, who joined Nick Cushing’s side in February 2016, has signed a one-year extension, keeping her at the Club until the summer of 2020 and will wear the No.5 shirt.

The 25-year-old has clocked up 28 appearances for the FA Cup and Continental Cup holders. Having missed much of the two double-winning campaigns through injury, Campbell now asserts she has put her injury woes behind her and is ready to play a key role in helping Cushing’s side to more silverware.

“I’m very excited to get going again, starting as a new player almost,” she told CityTV. “I’ve been out for so long injured so I’m looking forward to the challenge.

“I’m looking forward to coming in and fighting for my place. My thoughts are to stay fit and healthy and push on from there.

“I feel 100% fit. My injuries are in the past and I feel like a new player. I’ve been working hard in the off-season – there’s been no rest for me! I’ve had long enough off over the past year.
