Bayer CEO denies Heung-min Son deal to Tottenham Hotspur is done

Michael Schade has made it clear no deal for the South Korean is completed just yet.

Tottenham Hotspur were reported yesterday to be on the verge of signing South Korean striker Heung-min Son from Bayer Leverkusen.

It was reported by Sky Sports that Spurs were set to agree an £18 million move for the Bayer Leverkusen star, with a deal seemingly on the cusp of completion.

However, speaking after the Champions League draw in Monaco, Bayer CEO Michael Schade was dismissive of talks regarding a done deal.

He stated, as reported by Four Four Two:

"Nothing has happened up to now. 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.

"The next days will show, but we will only let Son Heung-min go when we are satisfied with the terms."

However it was reported by Sport1 in Germany last night that the talented attacker had already passed a medical at Hotspur Way and will be joining the club for the upcoming season.

It certainly seems that, despite the reticence of Schade, Son is on his way to White Hart Lane with an announcement surely on the cards.

His signature would be the latest movement in Tottenham’s restructuring of their attacking options. They have sold Roberto Soldado and are trying to shift Emmanuel Adebayor. Meanwhile Clinton N’Jie has arrived from Olympique Lyonnais and the club are still in hot pursuit of West Bromwich Albion attacker Saido Berahino.
