Leah Galton signs new deal at United


The winger has committed her future to the Reds after a superb start to the 2020/21 season.

Galton, who put pen to paper on a new United contract earlier this month, which keeps her at the club until at least June 2024, is the Reds' joint-leading goalscorer this season.

Our no.11 has netted six times in 18 appearances across all competitions in 2020/21, which is the same number of strikes Ella Toone has managed.

Leah was also voted WSL Player of the Month for December 2020, after excellent performances against Aston Villa, Reading and Bristol City.
