Tottenham's Son Heung-min is set to return to the starting line-up this weekend.

Tottenham star Son Heung-min has told the club's official website that he is happy to be with the club as he gears up to face West Ham United.

Son, 23, was Tottenham's marquee summer signing after a big-money from German side Bayer Leverkusen, where he scored 29 goals in 87 games.

So far, the South Korean international has made a huge impact at White Hart Lane, scoring three goals in seven games and becoming something of a fan favourite already.

Recently though, Son has been sidelined with a foot injury, and after six weeks out, he is finally back in contention for a starting role against West Ham United this weekend.

Son scored for South Korea against Laos in midweek, giving him great preparation for this weekend's game, and he has spoken to the Tottenham official website about his hopes.

The winger says that is happy to be at White Hart Lane after his summer move, and is keen to get on the scoresheet even more following his bright start.

Son is also eyeing up a win in their London derby against West Ham this weekend, in a game that he knows means a lot to the Spurs faithful - and after a cameo as a substitute against Arsenal two weeks ago, Son could be set for a weekend return to the starting line-up.

“This week was my first game in the starting line-up since the injury and I scored two goals, so I’m very happy, I feel very good and I want to score again now," said Son. I’m very happy to score for the national team and I’m very happy to be here at Spurs. I hope to score again for the club because, as an offensive player, when I play I want to score every game. This is normal for me."

"I know this coming match against West Ham is very important for us – I want to score and hopefully we will win. I’m confident we can do it because we are very strong. We are at a very good time now, we’re enjoying it, the players are very fit and we want to win every time. We feel very, very good and when I see the other players they are all very happy, they smile every time. We are very positive for Sunday and I hope that we can win," he added.
