Lauren Haynes: Oxford United Women sign Aston Villa midfielder
Oxford United Women have signed midfielder Lauren Haynes from Aston Villa ahead of the WSL 2 season.
Former Bristol Academy player Haynes made 15 appearances for Villa last season in their second-tier campaign.
The 20-year-old, from nearby Bicester, will combine playing with developing her coaching qualifications.
"The gap from the end of last season and start of this season seems way too long and I can't wait to get going again," Haynes told the club's website.
