Anna Patten rejoins Aston Villa on loan

Arsenal defender Anna Patten will join Aston Villa on loan for the 2022-23 season. The 23-year-old spent the second half of the previous campaign on loan with Villa too.

However, her season was cut short by glandular fever. With Leah Williamson, Rafaelle and Lotte Wubben-Moy established as the first three in the centre-half pecking order and Jen Beattie having signed a new deal and an agreement with Jonas Eidevall that Patten no longer be considered a back-up right-back, Patten should get valuable playing time under Carla Ward. Villa are in need of defensive reinforcements after the retirement of Anita Asante.

Good Experience for her.


Off Topic…

Tim, since we lost out on Geyse, have you heard of any other possible signings?

Does Jonas feel he has all he needs to win the WSL ?


Yes she won’t get ahead of our current CBs so makes sense to get some more experience of top flight football.
She never looked comfortable playing RB the few occasions I saw her play, and we are well covered with Rienwother at RB (who had a fantastic game for Austria last night – seriously, so impressed by how physical she was with Hemp and her passing/ crossing)


That’s good to hear about “Wienroither”
Sorry I could not watch the game.
