Amid reports of interest from the German champions, the South Korean has pledged his future to his current side

Son Heung-min insists his future lies with Tottenham despite speculation linking him with a move to Bayern Munich.

Son only signed a new five-year contract with Spurs in July but reports this week suggested the Bundesliga champions were plotting a move for the former Bayer Leverkusen forward.

The South Korea international has been a pivotal player for Mauricio Pochettino's side over the past two seasons, his 26 league goals easing the burden on star striker Harry Kane and helping Spurs to consecutive top-three finishes.

Speaking after Tottenham's 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday, Son said: "I recently renewed my contract with Tottenham, and I believe I need to focus on here to do more for the team. I'm happy at Tottenham."

Son secured exemption from military service after helping South Korea win the 2018 Asian Games with a 2-1 victory over Japan after extra time.
