Chioma Ubogagu has signed a contract with Spurs Women that will run until 2023, after spending the last two years at Real Madrid.

Part of the England squad that won the She Believes Cup in 2019, the former Arsenal player has also represented Houston Dash, Orlando Pride and Brisbane Roar, before helping Real Madrid qualify for the Champions League for the first time.

Ubogagu told tottenhamhotspur.com: “I’m really excited to join Spurs – it’s the club my late father supported, so for me to have the opportunity to put on the shirt is special and I can’t wait to get started. The WSL has always been a league full of top-class players and I believe it becomes more competitive year after year, so it’s a league I’m really proud to return to. I’m a huge fan of the big strides that are being made to make the league more visible to fans around the world and with Spurs, we have a really exciting squad and project, which I’m very proud to be a part of.”

Head Coach Rehanne Skinner said: “Chioma is a fantastic player and person whose qualities both on and off the pitch will strengthen the team tremendously. The wealth of experience and quality ‘Chi’ has gained through her successes in the front line across both youth and senior level in the USA, Australia, Spain and the UK, combined with her passion for the game and strong family connection to Spurs, made her a real target for the club, so we’re thrilled to have secured her services.”
