Spurs forward Son Heung-min will commence his military service in South Korea during the Premier League suspension.
The confirmation was done by Spurs who confirmed that the forward was already in his native country after arriving there at the end of March with the player expected back in London at the end of May.
The statement noted: “Our medical staff are in regular contact as he concludes his recovery after fracturing his arm in our 3-2 win against Aston Villa on 16 February and continues to train.
“Sonny had surgery on his arm in South Korea before returning to the UK at the end of February to continue his rehabilitation, prior to the initial announcement of the professional game in England being suspended as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Premier League has since announced that the 2019- 20 season will only return when it is ‘safe and appropriate to do so’ and is under constant review. Son will return to London following the conclusion of his military service in May.”
The 27-year-old, who has not played since February after fracturing his arm was exempted from the mandatory 21-month military service in 2018 after he helped South Korea to a gold medal at the Asian Games in September.
He is now expected to complete a four-week programme ahead of the 2020-21 season.
