Albion Women have signed England under-20 international Chloe Peplow on a contract until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old arrives at the club after her contract with Birmingham City ended on December 31, and she is eligible to make her debut in the FA Women’s Super League 2 match away at Doncaster Rovers Belles on January 28.

Albion first-team manager Hope Powell said: “We are delighted to welcome Chloe to the club, and she is a player that will bolster our midfield options going into the second half of the season.

“She is a player with plenty of experience at a young age, having featured for Birmingham at FA WSL 1 level and for England at youth-team level.

“She is a technical player with good potential and I’m very much looking forward to working with her.”

Peplow signed for Birmingham in December 2014 and made her debut for the Blues in a 3-0 victory over Bristol City in September 2015.

She also featured for the West Midlands club in the 2017 FA Cup Final, coming off the bench in a 4-1 defeat against Manchester City.

The midfielder spent the first half of this season on loan at Doncaster, and has represented England at under-15, under-17, under-19 and under-20 levels.
