– The Women’s Super League will be so visible next season. I’m sure it will inspire thousands of girls to play football, she continues.
The contract is valid for three years, until 2024.
England and Manchester City captain Steph Houghton also spoke.
– It is a fantastic step forward for women’s football. The way the sport has developed in this country in recent years is incredible, she tells the BBC.
