Bayer Leverkusen have attempted to brush aside reports Heung-Min Son is on the verge of joining Tottenham Hotspur.
We reported this afternoon that according to Cologne-based Sports Newspaper, Kolner Stadt-Anzeiger Leverkusen had accepted an offer and the South Korean will travel to London for a medical.
Responding to the claims regard Heung-Min Son, Leverkusen are quoted by the same paper that broke the news, Kölner Stadt-Anzeige, stating:
“That is not our subject, we are facing the most important game of the season.”
