Aston Villa have signed Kirsty Hanson from Manchester United on a two-year deal with the option of a further year, following her loan spell last season.

The 25-year-old Scotland international winger played 28 times in all competitions for Villa last season, scoring eight goals and contributing nine league assists.

Head coach Carla Ward told “This is a huge one for us and for the fans.

“We all know how important Kirsty was to us last season. The way she integrated herself into the group on and off the pitch made it feel like home for her.

“We’re delighted to now welcome her back and call Aston Villa her permanent home.

“This is an important part of her career, and the sky is the limit for her.”
