Tottenham complete £22m Son switch
28 Aug 2015 11:11
Tottenham have announced the signing of forward Son Heung-min from Bayer Leverkusen.
-
Son, who has been handed the number seven shirt, has signed a five-year deal with the north London club for a reported transfer fee of £22million.
-
The 23-year-old's move to White Hart Lane is subject to a work permit and international clearance.
-
Son, a South Korea international, scored 29 times in 87 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen after joining the club in 2013 from Hamburg.
-
He was the Bundesliga outfit's top scorer in the Champions League last season with three goals.
-
Son's arrival at White Hart Lane will help to ease the pressure on Harry Kane, who has failed to find the target this season.
-
It could also spell the end of Tottenham's pursuit of Saido Berahino. Spurs have already had two offers rejected for the West Brom striker.
-
Son has 11 goals in 44 appearances for his country and scored in their defeat against Algeria in the group stages of last summer's World Cup.
-
Son said: "I'm looking forward to going there and performing for the Spurs fans as soon as possible.
-
"The support I get from the fans motivates me more and more.
-
"I'm a player who really loves football. I learned the game under my father who was a football coach in my school.
-
"I've trained with both feet so I can use them freely. Bold and daring - this is how I like to try to play."
