Tottenham Hotspur Women have exercised the option to convert the loan of Cho So-hyun from West Ham into a permanent transfer.

The South Korea captain and midfielder made nine appearances for Spurs in the second half of the 2020/21 season.

Cho told tottenhamhotspur.com: “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.”
