Tottenham completed the £22million signing of South Korean forward Son Heung-min from Bayer Leverkusen on this day in 2015.
Son was handed the number seven shirt after agreeing a five-year deal with the north London club.
The 23-year-old had scored 29 times in 87 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen after joining the club in 2013 from Hamburg.
He was the Bundesliga outfit’s top scorer in the Champions League the previous season with three goals.
Son’s arrival spelled the end of Tottenham’s pursuit of Saido Berahino. They had already had two offers rejected for the West Brom striker.
