Spurs forward Heung-Min Son has put to bed speculation linking him with a move to the Saudi Pro League, telling reporters from Tottenham’s tour of Australia that he sees his future in the Premier League, for this season at least.
“Probably if I wanted to go there I would be out there, not here. (Laughs) I love playing football, obviously money is also important,” the 31-year-old South Korean said.

“I dream of playing in the Premier League and still a lot of things to do. I’m looking forward to it this season and obviously especially last season when I suffered physically.
“So this is not the Sonny that I know. I want to prove this season that I’m the Sonny that we all know. I want to prove that to myself and I want to give back to the club where I belong.
“Saudi is obviously where most people are going at the moment which is really, really interesting but it’s a dream for me to play in the Premier League and I’m looking forward to this season.”
Son registered 10 goals and 6 assists in 36 league games last season as Tottenham finished 8th in the Premier League.
