Manchester United have confirmed one of their key defenders has committed herself to the club until 2025.

Manchester United have announced that defender Millie Turner has extended her contract with the club until the end of the 2024/25 campaign.

Turner, whose contract was set to expire in the summer, has been part of the United Women’s set up since 2018 in the club’s inaugural season. She made her debut in the 1-0 win over rivals Liverpool on August 19th and has since made a total of 97 appearances for the Red Devils.

The 26-year-old defender has been key for Marc Skinner’s side this season as they have risen to the summit of the Women’s Super League, with the born and bred United fan scoring a dramatic 85th minute equaliser in the side’s thrilling 3-2 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates in November.

On the announcement, Turner said: “I’m so happy to extend my contract. It’s the club that I want to be at – I don’t want to be anywhere else. I just can’t wait to continue this journey; I think we’ve got something really special here. There’s no ceiling to what we can achieve, and I want to win trophies here.”

Head coach Skinner was equally as delighted, adding: “Millie is a player who optimises what it is to play for Manchester United, on and off the field. Her personal journey is one that fully deserves this new contract, and we are delighted that her energy, enthusiasm, and all-round quality will remain a part of our special group.”

A number of United players will see their contract expire at the end of the season, including star players Alessia Russo, Mary Earps and Ona Batlle, so securing Turner to a new deal will be seen as a huge boost for the club.
