Lehmann joins Juventus from Aston Villa


Alisha Lehmann has joined Juventus, leaving WSL club Aston Villa.

Lehmann is Juventus’ second WSL signing of the week after Everton’s record-signing Hanna Bennison moved to the club on Wednesday.

She made 74 appearances for Aston Villa, scoring 14 goals, with a club statement saying: “Everyone at the football club thanks Alisha for her time in claret and blue and wishes her well in her next chapter.”

The Switzerland international will join her partner Douglas Luiz in moving to Turin. Both players were at Villa together before Luiz completed his Juventus move on June 30.

Lehmann leaves Villa after three seasons and seven straight campaigns in the WSL, having previously played for West Ham and Everton. She had two years left to run on her current contract, with the option of a further year.

The 2024/25 Women’s Super League season will start on the weekend of September 21 and 22.

The key dates for the top two divisions of women’s football next term have been confirmed, with the Barclays Women’s Championship starting a fortnight earlier on the weekend of September 7 and 8.

The winter break will take place between December 16 and January 18, with the WSL season ending on the weekend of May 10 and May 11, 2025.

The start of the new WSL season comes 42 days after the women’s gold medal final of the Olympic Games campaign.

Team GB failed to qualify for the Paris tournament after England’s unsuccessful Nations League campaign, although the United States, Brazil and France are among the teams to have qualified.

Meanwhile, the 2024/25 Women’s League Cup dates have also been confirmed, with the group stage running from early October until mid-December. The final will be played on the weekend of March 15 and 16, 2025.
