Spurs sign South Korea's Son

28 August 2015, 18:16

London - Tottenham Hotspur have signed South Korea forward Son Heung-min from Germans Bayer Leverkusen, the English Premier League club announced Friday.

Son has signed a five-year deal with the north London side for a reported transfer fee of 22 million ($34 million, 30 million euros), with the 23-year-old's move to White Hart Lane subject to a work permit and international clearance.

Son scored 29 goals in 87 appearances for Leverkusen after joining from domestic rivals Hamburg in 2013.

His move will give Tottenham an extra forward option, with rising star Harry Kane yet to score this season.

Should Son's transfer be confirmed, it may mean that Spurs' pursuit of Saido Berahino is at an end, with the club having already had two offers for the West Bromwich Albion striker rejected by their Premier League rivals.

Son has 11 goals in 44 international appearances.

"I'm looking forward to going there and performing for the Spurs fans as soon as possible," Son told Tottenham's Twitter feed. "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."
