Tottenham deal for Son not complete, say Leverkusen

The South Korea international has already undergone a medical in north London, according to Rudi Voller, but the club insists that a deal has yet to be struck for the player


Bayer Leverkusen CEO Michael Schade insists no deal has been struck with Tottenham for Heung-Min Son, despite sporting director Rudi Voller claiming the 23-year-old has undergone a medical in north London.

Speaking after the Champions League draw, which saw Leverkusen pitted against Barcelona, Roma and BATE in Group E, Schade admitted that contact had been made with Spurs.

However, a deal remains some way off as the Premier League side look to add attacking reinforcements to a squad that boasts just Harry Kane as an out-and-out striker, with Emmanuel Adebayor having been banished by Mauricio Pochettino.

“Nothing has happened up to now,” he said. “There is a contact with England, and we are in discussions, but there hasn’t been any final negotiation.

“There is no transfer, and there is also no signature.”

He added: “The next days will show, but we will only let Son Heung-min go when we are satisfied with the terms.”

Son scored 17 goals in all competitions for Leverkusen last season.
