TOTTENHAM HAVE CONFIRMED the signing of Bayer Leverkusen striker Son Heung-min for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £22million.

The South Korea international arrives on a deal until 2020, bolstering the attacking options at White Hart Lane.

Mauricio Pochettino was known to be chasing West Brom forward Saido Berahino, but the arrival of Son — subject to a work permit and international clearance – casts significant doubt over that transfer.

Son’s signing could help to kick-start Harry Kane’s season, with the England striker having failed to find the net this term playing as a lone frontman.

The 23-year-old, who has 44 international caps to his name, made a total of 87 appearances during his time at Leverkusen, scoring 29 goals.
