Jill Scott to leave Manchester City this summer

Manchester City will bid farewell to midfielder Jill Scott this summer after her contract at the Academy Stadium expires.

Scott joined from Everton back in 2013 and went on to make 194 appearances in all competitions, with the 35-year-old lifting no fewer than eight trophies during her time at the club.

Scott spent the second half of this season with Aston Villa, where manager Carla Ward has already signalled her intention to try and sign the veteran permanently.

City plan to welcome Scott to a home game next season to be honoured for her services to the club, with the date of that fixture yet to be decided.

“In a way, I never thought I’d be here saying goodbye to Manchester City, but all good things come to an end eventually and I’ve had so many amazing memories along the way,” Scott said.
