Jess Park has signed her first professional contract at Manchester City at the current Women’s Super League leaders until 2023.
The 18 year old has already made 15 first team appearances for the Blues and has netted five goals in her last seven games.
“I’m over the moon to have my contract sorted,” she said speaking to the club website.
“I’ve absolutely loved every minute since joining City – with all the incredible resources we have, being here has helped me to develop massively and I can’t wait to continue my growth as a player with this brilliant Club.
“Being in the same team with players that are at the top of their game – both at Club and national level – is absolutely invaluable for a young player like myself, and I’m incredibly excited for what the next few years will hold here at Manchester City.
Park scored a hat-trick in the 10-0 win over Ipswich Town in the FA Cup for her first senior hat-trick in February.
Head of Women’s Football Gavin Makel added: “Jess is an extremely exciting young player, who since joining us at the age of 16, has fitted seamlessly into our senior set-up.
“We believe in her ability and we will do everything we possibly can to help her reach her potential.”
She has also had success already on the international stage and was named in the UEFA Women’s under 17 Championships team of the tournament.
Park also has registered five goals in eight games for England’s Under-19s.
