plans so far this season. She has scored four goals in 12 league games and helped her side to reach the delayed 2020 Women’s FA Cup final.

In a statement, Kirk said:

"I'm delighted to get Izzy's contract extended with the club.

"I've loved working with her since she arrived just over a year ago. From day one she has challenged and improved our standards and shows great leadership on and off the pitch.

"She had a slow start to her time after picking up a couple of niggly injuries almost immediately but since returning to the pitch it has been clear for all to see her undoubted quality.

"She is technically fantastic, physically in great condition and, tactically, way ahead of most players.

"Izzy will be pivotal to the success that we are trying to bring to the club."

Sarvar Ismailov, Everton's sporting, and commercial director added:

"Izzy is a phenomenal player. She is still hungry after already having achieved so much in football.

"She is a great leader in the team both on and off the pitch. We are delighted to continue our journey together to new success."
