Earps said: "I’m delighted to extend my stay here; we’ve grown so much as a team in the last couple of years and that’s something I’m really looking forward to continuing.

"I always want to be in an environment that will challenge me, I have a hunger to learn and improve, and the staff here are brilliant in giving me the best opportunity to do that.

"This team is capable of big things; I want to be playing Champions League football and to be competing for trophies and I know that ambition is shared across the squad. There is nowhere else I would want to be playing my football."

Casey Stoney said: "I’m pleased that Mary has committed her future to the club; she has been a fantastic player for us over the last couple of seasons.

"The experience she has brought to the team has been key, but she is also someone that will always ask questions and strives to improve every day, and that mindset is great to see.

"I know that Mary will continue to be an important part of the squad over the coming years, and I look forward to continuing our work with her."
