Tottenham have announced the signing of Chioma Ubogagu from Real Madrid on a two-year deal. The England international has three caps under her belt, scoring in one of the games. Ubogabu played for Arsenal in 2015 before moving to Houston Dash in the US. She also played for Orlando Pride and Brisbane Roar before making the move to Real Madrid.
“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.” Chioma Ubogagu said after joining Tottenham. “The Women’s Super League 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.”
“Chioma is a fantastic player and person whose qualities both on and off the pitch will strengthen the team tremendously.” Tottenham boss Rehanne Skinner said. “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.”
