Manchester United defender, Maya Le Tissier, has signed a contract extension with the club.

According to the BBC’s Emma Sanders, Le Tissier has signed a four-year deal to remain at the club until 2028.

In a tweet she said: “Great news for Manchester United fans that Maya Le Tissier has extended her contract. I understand it’s a four-year deal. Brilliant talent.”

The 22-year-old joined United in the summer of 2022, after two years at Brighton and Hove Albion where she was named as Brighton Women’s Young Player of the Season at Albion’s end-of-season awards for both the 2020–21 and 2021–22 seasons.

Upon her arrival at United, she scored two goals on her debut against Reading at Leigh Sports Village.

She has since gone on to make 59 appearances for United, and helped the club to reach two FA Cup finals in as many years.

Le Tissier said: “I’m really happy to sign a contract extension with this great club and look forward to ending the season strong, while continuing to build for the future.

“A big thank you to all our fantastic fans for their great support since I joined, and I’m excited for many more winning moments together.”

On the international stage, Le Tissier, who is from Guernsey, received her first senior England call-up for friendlies against Japan and Norway in November 2022.

She made her debut on 15 November, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–1 draw with Norway.

Speaking of the contract extension, Marc Skinner said: “Maya has become a real fixture of our team. For her to be playing every single minute like she has, is a testament to her.

“We want to make Maya a key feature of our team for many years to come. Maya’s a leader and everybody at the club should be proud that she’s decided to sign for us long-term. She has the right mentality and the right attitude – and is a perfect role model for the next generation.”

He concluded: “We look forward to working with her for many winning years to come.”
