Tottenham signed Heung-Min Son from Leverkusen over the summer.

Heung-Min Son has impressed in his early time at Tottenham, and his agent has told Naver Sports that the attacker pushed through the move to North London when he heard that Spurs were interested in his services.

Thies Bliemeister said: “The last decision was made by us three, the player, the dad and me, but Heung-Min was the first person push through the issue. He said ‘Can I move to Tottenham? I trust [Mauricio] Pochettino and I want to play with him. I want to play for Spurs.’ I respected him. Tottenham is the best place for Son to start in the Premier League.”

Son arrived at Spurs towards the end of the transfer window, and has so far started his career in North London in impressive form. Although he struggled on his debut against Sunderland, he went on to score twice on his home debut in the Europa League, before following that up with another goal against Crystal Palace at the weekend.

He is sure to start for the Lilywhites this evening as well, getting the first taste of a North London derby as Spurs take on Arsenal in the League Cup.

What is most impressive about Son has been the way he has adapted to becoming a Spurs player, diving straight into what the club represents.

Whilst a number of players brought to the club always looked like they never truly wanted to be at White Hart Lane, Son appears delighted to be a Tottenham player, and this only ones to further back-up his agent’s claims that it was the attacker who spoke to him about signing for Pochettino’s side.

When he heard of Tottenham’s interest Son was the player to admit he wanted the move, and knowing that Son pushed through the deal to take him to Spurs, it should not take long before the fans become enamoured with the South Korean international.
