Reading FC Women have signed veteran South Korea international Jeon Ga-eul, who was with Bristol City last season.

The forward, who has over 100 caps and 38 goals for her country, signed for Bristol City in January 2020.

“I’m delighted to join Reading,” Ga-eul told readingfc.co.uk. “As we have seen, the league is attracting the best players in the World and I’m happy to be a part of it. Unfortunately, my time in the WSL with Bristol was very short last season because of the Covid shutdown. So English football fans have not seen much of me, I hope that I can show them my ability here at Reading.”

Manager Kelly Chambers said: “It’s great to have Jeon as part of the team. We’ve really strengthened the squad this season and Jeon will definitely be a big part of that. She’s come straight in and got stuck in, which is exactly what we want and we’re very excited to see her in blue and white.”
