Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the signing of South Korea international Cho So-hyun from West Ham.

The midfielder joins the north London outfit on a loan deal after enjoying two years with the Irons.

Spurs have wasted no time in bolstering their squad ahead of the second half of the season. So-hyun joins England Lioness Abbie McManus as another temporary signing for the club. However, Tottenham have the option to make the South Korea captain’s move permanent should they wish.

As an international centurion and domestic veteran, the midfielder will bring experience and skill to Spurs’ midfield.

The north Londoners are very much going through a transition period right now. They recently announced the departure of managers Karen Hills and Juan Carlos Amoros, who took Spurs to their promotion into the Women’s Super League.

The club is now spearheaded by former England coach Rehanne Skinner. Spurs currently sit in seventh place in the WSL table on 12 points. Their most recent fixture saw them beat West Ham on the road, adding to the Hammers’ distress this season.

So-hyun will be available for selection ahead of Spurs’ upcoming clash with Chelsea this Sunday.
