Photos: New Spurs signing Heung-min Son takes part in first training session

The 23-year-old South Korean star only confirmed his switch to Tottenham earlier on Friday, but looked delighted to have made the move in these photos.

New Tottenham Hotspur signing Heung-min Son has already joined his new teammates for his first training session at Hotspur Way, as seen in photos on the club's official Twitter and Facebook accounts, and by the looks of it he is certainly enjoying himself.

The 23-year-old only completed his move from Bayer Leverkusen earlier today, but he was seen training with his fellow Spurs squad members with a beaming smile for much of the day, and there were plenty of photographers ready to capture him on the ball.

It remains to be seen if the South Korean international will get his registration paperwork in order in time to face Everton, with a September debut a little more likely, but there was further good news for Spurs fans disappointed by Christian Eriksen's absence against the Toffees this weekend as Alex Pritchard continued to build up his fitness after his ankle injury in the summer.

The former Brentford man may well be involved in some capacity at White Hart Lane as the North Londoners seek to get their first win of the season.


However, it is hard to deny that the big attraction on Friday was forward Son, who is set to feature in senior football for the first time outside of the Bundesliga. He is set to become the first South Korean to play for the club since fullback Lee Young-pyo, and coming in at a price reported by the Mirror to be £22 million, the third largest fee ever paid by Spurs, it is expected that he will make a big impression in the coming years.
