Arsenal Ladies have completed the signing of forward Chioma Ubogagu from Stanford University in the United States.

She made 89 appearances during her four years at the college, scoring 27 goals and finishing fourth in the all-time Stanford assist list with 37. She captained the side in her final year.

A United States youth international, Ubogagu helped her country to victory in the 2012 Under-20 Women's World Cup in Japan.

Raised in Texas but born in London, Ubogagu is a lifelong Arsenal supporter and her grandfather represented Nigeria as a player.

Manager Pedro Martinez Losa is delighted to welcome her to the club: “Chioma is a player I have known about from my time coaching in the United States and she is a fantastic talent. She is very creative, and is able to make goals as well as score them. I think that she will fit in very well with us.”
