Heung-Min Son has dismissed reports linking him with a move to Bayern Munich, insisting he is happy at Tottenham.
The South Korean recently returned from the Asian Games where he won a gold medal and earned exemption from mandatory service military.
After playing eight games in 26 days for his country, Son understandably hasn’t been at his best for Spurs this term.
But the 26-year-old has emerged as one of the most important players in the squad over the last couple of years, as illustrated by the new long-term contract he signed over the summer.
Such has been the quality of his performances, reports earlier this month suggested Bayern Munich could be interested in taking Son back to Germany.
However, speaking after Tottenham’s 2-1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, Son revealed there is no truth to those rumours.
“I recently renewed my contract with Tottenham, and I believe I need to focus on here to do more for the team. I’m happy at Tottenham,” Son said (via Goal).
Son could be given the chance to regain some sharpness against Watford in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night, although Mauricio Pochettino might be better off resting him.
