The deal, subject to work permit and international clearance, is reportedly worth £22m and he will wear the number seven shirt for the English Premier League outfit.

Son has agreed to sign a five-year contract at White Hart Lane, where he has been bought to support Harry Kane as Tottenham’s main striker.

“I’m a player who really loves football. I learned the game under my father who was a football coach in my school,” the 23-year-old forward told club’s official site.

“I’m looking forward to going there and performing for the Spurs fans as soon as possible. The support I get from the fans motivates me more and more.

“I’ve trained with both feet so I can use them freely. Bold and daring – this is how I like to try to play,” he added.

Son made a total of 87 appearances and scored 29 times during his spell at Bayer Leverkusen, since joining from Hamburg in summer 2013.
