Republic of Ireland international defender Megan Campbell has promised Manchester City fans that the best is yet to come from her after signing a new one-year deal with the Women's Super League side.

City had topped the table before the league's suspension in March due to the coronavirus pandemic but Chelsea pipped them to the title when the season was ended last month and decided on a points-per-game basis.

The 26-year-old has played 42 times for City since joining from Florida State Seminoles in 2016 but missed the end of the campaign with a foot injury that also saw her absent for Ireland's qualifiers against Greece and Montenegro in March.

"I'm really pleased to have signed a new contract, especially knowing I'm unfortunately injured at the minute," she told the Manchester City website.

"When you're injured, it’s always a difficult situation when you’re coming to the end of your contract and you've picked up an injury or a niggle but I'm glad City have given their full backing and support behind me to get back fit.

"To have that faith from the club is a nice gesture and I'm looking forward to getting back fit and playing again.

"I don't think anyone has seen the best of me yet – I don't think I've seen it from myself as a footballer. There were glimpses at the end of 2017 in the Spring Series and the FA Cup Final where I got to show what I'm about.

"I'm more driven than ever to be back involved.

"I'm on track with where I need to be and I’m meeting with the surgeon soon so I’m looking forward to that to see what he thinks of my progress. Hopefully, I’ll get back running soon - back on the grass. I’m thankful for the people around me."
