Son Heung-Min has refused to be troubled by suggestions that he could leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The 23-year-old scored four goals in his 28 Premier League appearances but was particularly criticised for his display in Spurs' final day defeat to already relegated Newcastle United.

There have been reports that the South Korean international could be moved on to another club, with Spurs looking to recoup as much of his £22million transfer fee as possible.

Chances created - 18

But Son said, as reported by FourFourTwo: 'I saw the articles but I've heard nothing about my transfer. 

'Should I be worried? I don't think so. I already told Tottenham that I want to play in Olympic Games, they're looking into it positively.'

Much has been made of how difficult it can be for a foreign player to adapt to the Premier League upon arrival.

Son himself believes that can often be the case, and claimed that he always intended to use his first campaign as a learning experience.

He continued: 'I always wanted to learn first when I decided to come to Premier League, rather than do really well from the start.

'Due to injuries, my debut season was not satisfying. But I learned a lot how to manage games, myself physically. And also learned about a new culture.' 

Son's goal return in the Premier League was his worse since his maiden season as a professional in 2010-11, when he scored four times in the league for Hamburg, although he only made 13 appearances in that campaign.
