We are delighted to announce that we have exercised the option to convert the loan of So-hyun Cho from West Ham United into a permanent transfer. Cho has signed a contract with the Club until 2022, with an option to extend for a further year.
Captain of the South Korea women’s national team, the midfielder initially arrived here in January after two years with the Hammers and went on to make nine appearances in our colours during the second half of the 2020/21 season.
Cho said: “I am so happy to sign for Spurs after my loan at the Club and I feel lucky to work with such talented staff and team-mates. With the help of everyone here, I was able to adapt quickly to the team last season. I still need to adapt more – I want to score and assist a lot more. I believe our team will get better and better and I am very excited to be part of the Club going into the future. I’m really looking forward to the start of the new season.”
Head Coach Rehanne Skinner added: “I’m delighted to have Cho on board permanently now – I think she’s been a fantastic asset to us in the games that she’s played so far. What she offers us from a possession perspective is someone who unlocks defences, looks to break lines and creates opportunities to get our forwards into good positions. She’s tactically a very intelligent player with so much experience on an international and on a club stage. I’m looking forward to working with her moving forward.”
