Harry Kane says new Spurs star Heung-Min Son compliments his style well

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

The two young forwards are set to be key men for Tottenham this season.

Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane has paid credit to the impact new arrival Heung-Min Son has made on the Spurs squad since arriving from Germany this summer, in an interview with the club website.

Kane emphasised that the 23-year-old South Korean international had already caught they eye with his personality and ability, and stated that he already felt they were developing a good relationship on the pitch.

"He's a great player and a great guy as well, a good character to have around the changing room," Kane told the Spurs site.

"You can see from the goals he's scored already and the skills he has, using both feet, that he's a very good player. It's exciting times for him and for us as a club as well as he's only young.

"We compliment each other quite well. We had some good moments in the game against Crystal Palace. The fans took to him quite well too, with his work rate and skills."

Though Kane is yet to score for his club this season, there is little doubt that he is the main man up top for the North Londoners after his tremendous 31 goals last season. Having been involved in every every match this season for Spurs, it's no surprise that Kane is looking to develop his attacking play with the South Korean, with the 22-year-old's tendency to drop deep at times leaving space for the likes of Son to do damage off the wing or from the number ten position.

The summer signing from Bayer Leverkusen has already netted three times in three starts as he looks to get acclimatised to English football, and if Kane can rediscover his scoring touch alongside a firing Son and a returning Christian Eriksen, Spurs should be able to push on this season - starting with the match against Manchester City this Saturday.
