She told the club’s official website: “I’m so excited to sign a new contract.

“I’ve been a City fan my whole life and it’s no secret that I’ve got intentions of staying here for a long time.

“The decision to extend my contract felt like the perfect one for me to make at this time in my career as I continue to develop and hopefully push on to be a more regular player for City in an amazing environment.

“Having my injury this season and being more of a fan myself again has reignited my desire to get back playing and when that happens, it’ll probably feel like my debut all over again.

“In my mind, when I make my comeback, it will be starting a new journey and a new chapter in my time at this club and I can’t wait to pull the shirt back on and play in front of our fans again.”

Taylor said: “It’s fantastic news that Esme has signed a contract extension with us. Having her for the next three years is a real coup for us as a club as she’s a very exciting young talent.

“She has shown over the last few seasons just what a gifted and versatile player she is and, at just 21, she only has her best years ahead of her which is an incredible thought.

“The dedication and hard work she has shown throughout her rehabilitation this season just sums up how fantastic she is both on and off the pitch, and we’re looking forward to continuing to help her to develop over the next few years and beyond.”
