Karima Benameur Taieb has signed a two-year contract extension at Manchester City ahead of the upcoming Women's Super League season.
The 31-year-old initially joined City in September last year on a deal until the end of the season.
The experienced 'keeper, who will now be known as Benameur Taieb after adopting her mother's surname, made three appearances for City last season and featured in a barnstorming 3-3 league draw with eventual champions.
"I am really happy to extend my contract with City," Taieb said.
"In the club, what I like is that everyone works hard and gives the very best of themselves but at the same time, the atmosphere is very relaxed - everybody works hard individually and is looking at giving their very best within a very friendly and good working environment.
"This gives us the drive to be better and to want to do better. I learned a lot of things. It has been a great season, a great year - even if it ended a bit too early, unfortunately.
"Personally, next season, I hope to have more game-time and to win titles next season because this year we didn't get the chance to do that, although we had everything to be able to achieve it."
City's head of women's football, Gavin Makel, added: "Having joined the club last summer, Karima has proven herself to be a top-class goalkeeper and an outstanding team player, whilst she has fitted seamlessly into the culture of the group.
"I'm delighted that Karima has extended her stay with us for the foreseeable future."
