Birmingham City goalkeeper undergoing treatment on ankle injury

Birmingham City goalkeeper Hannah Hampton is understood to be undergoing treatment on an ankle injury according to reports on the club’s official website.

The 19-year-old Birmingham-born stopper sustained the injury earlier this month whilst training with the England senior squad during the 2020 SheBelieves Cup in the United States.

Hampton has since returned to her club and is undergoing treatment, although it has been reported that this is proving difficult due to the self-isolation restrictions issued by the UK government to help combat the Coronavirus crisis.

The keeper has damaged ligaments in her ankle which would usually heal within a few weeks, although Birmingham City have not provided an official timescale for Hampton’s return given the unique working and social restrictions which the country currently finds itself operating under.

Hampton joined Birmingham City from Stoke City in 2016 and the youngster has gone on to make the senior team’s number one goalkeeping jersey her own since the departure of former Blues keeper Ann-Katrin Berger last year.

England boss Phil Neville called up Hampton to his 2020 SheBelieves Cup squad last month with the teenager being named as a designated ‘training player’. The call-up came just six months after Hampton was called into the England Under-21 squad for the very first time.
