SEOUL (Yonhap) — Tottenham Hotspur announced on Tweeter on Wednesday that South Korean footballer Son Heung-min has been granted a work permit, completing his transfer to the English Premier League.

Son “has been granted a work permit and received international clearance,” Tottenham Hotspur said on its official Twitter account.

Last week, Son scored his first international hat trick as South Korea routed Laos 8-0 in their World Cup qualifier at home for their second straight victory in the regional qualification stage.
