Republic of Ireland defender Megan Campbell has signed a new one-year deal with Manchester City. 

Campbell has endured a torrid three years with injuries. She was ruled out for eight months in 2016 with an ankle problem.

In November 2017, after bouncing back to form and fitness, she suffered a horrific ACL injury in a UEFA Champions League match against LSK Kvinner FK which left her on the sidelines for 16 months.

Campbell, 25, made her Ireland return in the February friendly against Wales and was an unused sub when City won the FA Cup, beating West Ham the 3-0 in the final. Now, she's ready to tear into pre-season and re-establish herself in the City defence ahead of the new campaign.

"I'm very excited to get going again, starting as a new player almost," she told CityTV.

"I’ve been out for so long injured so I’m looking forward to the challenge.

"I’m looking forward to coming in and fighting for my place. My thoughts are to stay fit and healthy and push on from there.

"I feel 100% fit. My injuries are in the past and I feel like a new player. I’ve been working hard in the off-season, there’s been no rest for me! I’ve had long enough off over the past year.

"Hopefully, going forward, I can push for minutes and play as much as I can over the season."
