 Women's Football News 27 Jan 2014
 
Chelsea sign South Korean star - 27 Jan 2014 - Women's Football NewsChelsea are delighted to announce the signing of South Korea international Ji So-Yun. 
 
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder, who has represented her country 55 times and scored 26 goals having made her debut aged just 15, has agreed a two-year deal with manager Emma Hayes' side.
 
Ji joins the club from Japanese league and cup holders INAC Kobe Leonessa, who defeated Chelsea Ladies in the final of December's International Women's Club Championship (IWCC) in Tokyo.
 
The three-time Korean Footballer of the Year is Hayes' fifth signing this winter, having already added England quartet Rachel Williams, Laura Bassett, Gilly Flaherty and Katie Chapman to her squad for this year's WSL, which gets underway in April.
 
"What a fantastic signing for the club," said Hayes. "I believe she is one of the best midfielders in the world and our fans will love her."
 
Ji, who will become the first Korean woman to play in the WSL, added: "I am glad to be joining Chelsea Ladies and look forward to the new challenge of playing football in Europe.
 
"I will get myself in gear to become an integral player for my team and to lead Chelsea to the highest possible levels.
 
"I hope many fans will be greatly interested in our team and my activities. I will always do my best for our club and Chelsea fans."
 
Hayes is delighted to welcome Ji to the club having been a huge fan of the playmaker's talent prior to seeing her in an INAC Kobe shirt during the IWCC and is confident her latest recruit will have a major impact on this year's WSL.
 
"She has got everything and is a great fit for our team and I've no doubt she will prove a big success in a Chelsea shirt," added the Chelsea Ladies manager.
