German outlet Sport1 has reported that Heung-Min Son passed his medical at Tottenham Hotspur.
Discussions between Tottenham and Bayer Leverkusen are said to be ongoing, although it was believed a deal could even be agreed as soon as today (Thursday), with Sport1 writing he has a four-year deal on offer.
The South Korean international was nowhere to be seen at Bayer yesterday as the club clinched Champions League qualification with a win over Lazio.
Unfortunately for Spurs the buyout clause in Son's contract expired in May, complicating negotiations.
It is though not anticipate Leverkusen would try to block the deal, merely hold out for a price and payment structure which is to their liking.
Son's departure less than 24 hours before a crucial game upset his manager Roger Schmidt, and teammate Hakan Calhanoglu, who told Sport1: "I think it's just a pity that he is ill advised by his dad or agent, just before so a game like against Lazio this did not have to be."
No formal announcement has been made by either club but Tottenham would surely like to be able to unveil the forward in front of fans this weekend when they host Everton on Saturday evening.
