Tottenham Hotspur Women’s squad rebuild continues today. Spurs announced this morning on their social media channels that they have signed 28-year old Real Madrid forward Chioma Ubogagu on a contract through 2023.

Ubogagu is a native Londoner and a striker who has moved around a lot. A graduate of Stanford University in California, she’s had stints at Arsenal, Houston Dash and Orlando Pride (the latter of which included 58 appearances and 12 goals), a short loan to Australia, and two years in Spain, the last of which was at Real Madrid where she had 11 appearances and two goals.

I don’t know much about Ubogagu, but a colleague of mine who’s much closer to women’s world footy suggested that Chioma is more likely to be a depth signing than someone who will carry the scoring load at Tottenham in the WSL this season. That’s fine. Depth is important, and it’s also good to have a number of scoring options available when something isn’t working. Ubogagu is a veteran player and will hopefully be a solid addition to the squad.

Welcome to Spurs, Chioma!
