Aston Villa Ladies have re-signed central midfielder Abbeyleigh Stringer from Birmingham City Ladies.

The 20-year-old has made two appearances for Blues in Women's Super League One this season after joining them last July.

"We are delighted to welcome Abbeyleigh back," Villa head coach Joe Hunt said.

"It's another positive signing for the club. It's a player that knows everyone at the club so will find it easy to settle in."

He added: "She has spent a year with Birmingham City playing with great players like Karen Carney and Jade Moore and the experience she has had playing with full senior England internationals will make her a stronger player."

Stringer leaves a Birmingham side who are second from bottom of the table, while Villa are fifth in WSL 2 with 13 points from nine matches.
