Steph Houghton has been capped 117 times at senior international level for England

England captain Steph Houghton has signed a two-year contract extension at Manchester City, keeping her at the Women’s Super League club until 2022.

The 31-year-old has been with City since 2014 and has helped them win six major trophies, including the 2016 WSL title and two Women’s FA Cups.

Centre-back Houghton, who received an MBE in 2016, had previously played for Arsenal, Leeds and Sunderland.

Her existing deal had been set to expire at the end of this season.

“I’m really delighted. I’ve been here for six years and I’ve been made to feel at home,” she told the club’s website.
