Midfielder Cho has agreed a one-year deal with Birmingham City while the club hold the option to extend the arrangement by a further 12 months.
The 35-year-old arrives at St Andrew’s with a wealth of experience in the game. Cho has enjoyed a long career which has seen her play in her native South Korea, Japan, Norway and England. The midfielder is the joint-highest appearance holder of all-time for the South Korean national team. She has made 148 appearances for her country in which she has scored 26 goals.
