London - South Korean forward Son Heung-min has joined Tottenham from Bayer Leverkusen on a five-year deal.

Tottenham announced the transfer on Friday, with British media reporting the club has paid about £18 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.

Son has scored 10 or more goals in the Bundesliga in each of the past three seasons.

Spurs are rebuilding their strike force, after buying Clinton Njie and selling Roberto Soldado this summer. Another striker, Emmanuel Adebayor, doesn't appear to be part of manager Mauricio Pochettino's plans.

He will wear the number 7 shirt with ‘Son’ on his back.
