Son unfazed by Tottenham exit rumours

The South Korea international has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane this summer but he insists he is not fazed by rumours suggesting he will be sold

Tottenham forward Son Heung-Min says he is unworried by speculation over his future, amid reports he could be sold by the club after just one season in the Premier League.

Son joined Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen in a £22 million deal last summer but scored just four goals in 28 Premier League appearances in 2015-16.

Spurs ultimately finished third, with Son hooked at half-time as Mauricio Pochettino’s men lost 5-1 to Newcastle on the final day, and the 23-year-old has since been heavily linked with an exit.

Son is currently with South Korea, preparing for international friendlies against Spain and Czech Republic, and says he has no concerns over his long-term future.

“I saw the articles but I’ve heard nothing about my transfer,” he told reporters.

“Should I be worried? I don’t think so. I already told Tottenham that I want to play in Olympic Games, they’re looking into it positively.

“I always wanted to learn first when I decided to come to Premier League, rather than do really well from the start.

“Due to injuries, my debut season was not satisfying. But I learned a lot how to manage games, myself physically. And also learned about a new culture.”
