Birmingham City Women have signed Leicester City midfielder Charlie Devlin on a season-long loan, revealed by a press release earlier today.

Devlin, who is a former graduate of the Arsenal academy setup, will prove to be a real asset for Darren Carter’s side.

The midfielder joined Manchester United and helped them to the league title in her first attempt. Then after a short spell at Charlton Athletic, Devlin then joined Leicester City where she won another title in the form of the Barclays Women’s Championship.

Although she only made six appearances for The Foxes last term she brings a wealth of experience into the newly relegated Birmingham side.

Completing her move to St Andrews, Devlin said:

“I’m so excited. There is a good vibe and good energy here. With the group of girls we’ve got, I feel like we’ve got a good team spirit to do well in this league.

“I like the way Darren (Carter) manages the girls and the style of football will really benefit me.”

Devlin becomes Birmingham City’s eighth signing of what has been a very busy summer transfer window.
