When there were transfer rumours swinging around Heung-min Son during the summer, it wasn’t a huge surprise. With claims coming from Germany of VfL Wolfsburg being prepared to spend around €30m on Son, the deal didn’t look too bad for Spurs.

Since then everything has of course changed, and during Harry Kane’s injury abscense, Son has shown how important he can be, and now a winter move would look very unlikely indeed.

That’s bad luck for Wolfsburg, say German magazine SportBild, who point out it was Maurciio Pochettino who vetoed what would have been a €32m transfer, because he had no interest in selling the South Korean international.

The Bundesliga club had hoped Son would be a bit part player until the January transfer window, at which point they could again dangle the bid in front of Tottenham, but that plan has now completely gone out of the window.

SportBild spoke to Son, and he sounds very happy indeed with his life at Spurs: “It’s a lot of fun to play football with this team. We look from game to game and are pleased to be standing so well.”

Poor Wolfsburg.
