Birmingham City have completed the signing of central midfielder Abbey-Leigh Stringer from Aston Villa.
The 18-year-old, who has been included in the England U20 squad for the forthcoming FIFA Women's Under-20 World Cup in Canada, is viewed as an intelligent footballer who has the talent to pull the strings in the middle of the park.
Stringer graduated through Villa's Centre of Excellence and has been with the FA WSL2 side for the past four seasons.
Commenting on the new recruit, Birmingham manager David Parker said: "We're delighted to bring Abbey-Leigh to the football club. It is another sign that hungry, young players see this club as the place to develop and reach their potential.
"When meeting with Abbey-Leigh and her family it was obvious she was desperate to succeed at the highest level and didn't need to be sold on what the club can do for her, our record speaks for itself.
"I remember watching her play when she was 13-years-old and developing at the old Coventry City Ladies Centre of Excellence and she always stood out then as a player to watch out for in the future.
"Since then she has gone on to represent England at all youth levels so far and has great experience. She is joining at the perfect time for us and our quest for honors this season adding even more depth to our young squad.
"It's just another perfect fit for us and our way that we want to move forward."
