Tottenham announced the transfer on Friday, with British media reporting the club has paid about 18 million pounds ($27.7 million) for Son. The move is subject to Son obtaining a work permit and international clearance.

The 23-year-old Son has spent his professional career in Germany, making his debut for Hamburg in 2010 and then joining Leverkusen in 2013.
