Photos: Heung-Min Son in Tottenham training - but Townsend also back competing for a place

There is now plenty of competition out wide for Tottenham Hotspur. Will it help up the performance levels of the club's existing wingers?

Tottenham's £22 million signing Heung-Min Son looked sharp in first-team training on Thursday afternoon as the north London side prepared for their weekend trip to Sunderland.

The South Korean, whose £22m fee was reported by the Guardian among others, will carry plenty of expectation on his shoulders as he looks to rejuvenate a Tottenham attack that has been limp so far this season.

That's if boss Mauricio Pochettino gives him game time against the Black Cats, of course, as he now has a number of options out wide.

Clinton Njie, another August signing, is yet to feature, while Andros Townsend was pictured back in first-team training after his injury problems. The 24-year-old will be doing his best to push his way back into the Spurs side.

Also competing for a place out wide will be Nacer Chadli, who has received criticism for his form so far this term but has contributed during key moments in the final third.

And Erik Lamela was also snapped in Tottenham training, although the Argentine is likely to find himself far down the pecking order after a poor start to his Premier League campaign and failure to live up to his big-money price tag thus far.
