The 25-year-old has completed a move to the Asian nation after parting ways with the American side Seattle Reign.

Ghana international Elizabeth Addo has signed a year deal to join Chinese Women's Super League side Jiangsu Suning.

The 25-year-old became a free agent after breaking ties with American top-flight outfit Seattle Reign in February.

At Reign, the Black Queens captain enjoyed a successful season-long spell after joining from Swedish side Kvarnsveden in January 2018.

She made 13 appearances at the Cheney Stadium and had a brief loan stint with Western Sydney Wanderers in Australia during the off-season.

Now, the 2018 African Women's Player of the Year nominee has been reunited with her former Kvarnsvedens IK teammate Tabitha Chawinga at Jiangsu.

The former Rivers Angels and Ferencvárosi player will wear the club's jersey no. 6 formerly donned by Costa Rica star Shirley Cruz.

Jocelyn Precheur's side will hope to benefit from the wealth of experience the Ghanaian brings, having played in Europe, North America and recently Australia.

Jiangsu were 2018 Chinese FA Cup Champions and ended as last season's league and Super Cup runners-up - a feat they will look to improve upon.

She becomes the fourth African to have sealed a move to the Far East in 2019 after Nigeria's Francisca Ordega, South Africa duo of Thembi Kgatlana and Linda Molthalo.

Addo will begin life in China as they host Henan Huishang FC in a Women's FA Cup quarter-final encounter on April 7.
