Blues sign midfielder Sarah Mayling from Villa Ladies
The promising 19-year-old joins on a six-month deal that will run until the end of the Spring Series.
The technical midfielder who came through Villa’s centre of excellence can play as a central midfielder or out wide as a winger.
Mayling has recently been called up to England Next Generation squad after a string of impressive performances with England's U20s side.
She is known for her outstanding technical ability and eye for goal.
The exciting prospect missed the majority of the 2015 campaign after suffering an ACL injury, but she returned last season to make a total of 22 appearances.
Mayling’s signing follows the excellent news that Jess Carter extended her stay with a new 18-month contract.
