Tang, 26, is a regular on the China women’s national team and was once considered one of the best young talent in women’s football in China. She has consistently scored in the Super League and made her international debut seven years ago against the US women’s soccer team.
It’s no secret that the only thing Tottenham really struggled with last season was hitting the net. Hope this is something Tan can help with, even as she adapts to a new league in a new country. For her sake, Jiang said she is excited to play in England and excited to join Tottenham this season.
“I am so happy to join Tottenham Hotspur. I am a big fan of Premier League football and have always dreamed of playing in England. I can’t wait to come to London and I hope I can help make this season a success for the team. “
Jiali is currently still in China but will soon be joining her new teammates. Welcome to Tottenham, Giali!
