Aston Villa and England youth international winger Freya Gregory has joined Leicester City Women on loan.

The left-sided player has six caps for England U-17s and made her WSL debut aged 17 when with Birmingham City.

Gregory, who is 19 next week, has made six appearances this season for Aston Villa, including three starts, and sixteen matches overall.

She told LCFC TV: “I’m buzzing to be honest, just to get playing football, doing what I know I can do and prove myself in the league.

“It’s been a good few days trying to get involved and get started but I’m really excited to be here. It’s an ambitious club and I’m excited to join it.”
