Gemma Davies delighted with Arthur and Asante arrivals

Gemma Davies revealed her delight at the signings of Chloë Arthur and Anita Asante as Aston Villa Women prepare for their first FA Women’s Super League campaign.


Midfielder Arthur arrives from Birmingham City while centre-back Asante joins following two years with Chelsea.


Both are experienced internationals and Davies sat down with VillaTV to highlight the attributes that the duo will bring to the side.


On Asante, she said: “Anita is coming with tonnes of Women’s Super League experience and that is a fundamental part of our recruitment strategy.


“She fits perfectly, we want centre-halves that can get on the ball and want to play."


Speaking about Arthur, Davies added: “Chloë has Super League experience, she’s represented Scotland and she’s a very technical player.


“We are really excited about Chloë and her potential, I think she will really develop and she’s certainly somebody to watch for the future.”
