City sign Alex Greenwood
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 10 Sep 2020
FA WSL news - City sign Alex Greenwood - 10 Sep 2020 - Women's Football NewsManchester City Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of UEFA Women's Champions League winner and England international Alex Greenwood on a three-year deal.
The full-back links up with City following the conclusion of her contract with Olympique Lyonnais, whom she won the UEFA Women's Champions League with in late August.
A key figure in the game during her decade-long career so far, the defender started out with Everton in her home city and was named FA Young Player of the Year in 2012. The Liverpudlian then enjoyed stints with Notts County - with City striker Ellen White - and Liverpool - alongside Blues' duo Caroline Weir and Gemma Bonner - while she was named in the FA WSL Team of the Year in 2015-16.
Moving to Manchester United in 2018, Greenwood captained the Red Devils as they won promotion to the Barclays FA Women's Super League in their debut season as a team. Her efforts caught the eye of Lyon meanwhile, with the French side taking her to Division 1 Féminine last summer where she helped them to secure the Trophee des Championnes, Coupe De France, domestic league title and UEFA Women's Champions League in 2019-20.
Internationally, Greenwood made her debut for England in 2014 against Finland in the Cyprus Cup - a tournament the Lionesses won just a year later - before figuring prominently as the team secured a third place finish in the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. Boasting 46 caps for the national team, the left back also helped England to SheBelieves Cup success in 2019 alongside being an integral member of the side who reached the semi finals of the World Cup in the same year.
After a season in France, Greenwood makes her return to the Barclays FA Women's Super League with City, penning a three-year deal and donning the number 27 shirt.
Speaking after signing on the dotted line, Greenwood said: "I'm so excited to get going - it's been a crazy and unforgettable few weeks, but I just can't wait to get started and bring that winning feeling to City.
"I've learned so much about myself over the past 15 months by living away from home and in a different culture and environment, but it's given me so much time to develop both personally and as a player.
"Now is the time for a new challenge though and having experienced such a successful campaign last season, when you get that taste for a winning mentality, it's addictive and I just want to continue that with City.
"This Club has always impressed me with their success, how much importance they view the women's game with and the players they attract, and it's an environment I'm really looking forward to working in."
Head Coach Gareth Taylor said: "We're delighted to have added Alex to our already strong squad ahead of the new season.
"She is a proven England international who will fit right into the group we have here at City, while she has also been involved in a number of successes recently to add accolades to her already impressive career so far.
"She's a very ambitious player and we're looking forward to hopefully enjoying more success together in the coming seasons."
Head of Women's Football Gavin Makel added: "Alex is a highly experienced international whose technical abilities and willingness to succeed will only further strengthen the team as we look at competing on all fronts.
"At only 27 years old, she joins us with her best years still to come and I'm looking forward to seeing how she further develops."
