Aston Villa Women have secured the signature of Swiss international Alisha Lehmann from West Ham United.

Lehmann, who has over 20 caps for her country and can play in several forward positions, has spent the last three seasons in the WSL with the Hammers, while also having a loan spell at Everton.

Villa head coach Carla Ward told avfc.co.uk: “Alisha comes with both experience and an unbelievable amount of potential. At 22, Alisha has already shown in recent seasons that she can light up any WSL game.

“I’m delighted she’s put pen to paper and I’m looking forward to working with her. Alisha’s a really exciting addition to the group.”
