England Women midfielder Georgia Stanway has extended her contract with Bayern Munich until 2026.
The 24-year-old joined the German side in May last year after leaving Manchester City.
Stanway, who helped Bayern to Frauen-Bundesliga glory last season, has scored 10 goals in 37 appearances across all competitions for the Bavarians.
She told the club's official website: «It feels like home here for me, which is very important for me. This here is the best place for me, and I see my future here. The chance to extend at Bayern, and the fact the club also wants to, is a great honour.
»As a footballer and professional sportsperson, you're here to assert yourself, and we as a team are here to win. I think that's a given. I'm very driven and will do everything I can to help the team, both on and off the pitch."
Stanway is one of Bayern's three captains this season alongside Glodis Perla Viggosdottir and Sarah Zadrazi.
She added: «My favourite moment of last season was definitely winning the title.
