Aston Villa Ladies have re-signed right-back Laura Cooper from Derby.

The versatile youngster graduated from the club's centre of excellence before joining Derby.

Aston Villa travel to Vicarage Road to face Watford on Saturday in their second league fixture of the season, and Cooper will be eligible to play.

Villa began their WSL 2 campaign with a loss at home to recently-relegated Everton, before progressing to the last eight of the FA Cup.
