By Dominic Toner
Wolfsburg will return to sign Tottenham attacking midfielder Son Heung-Min in January, according to a report.
German publication WAZ claims that the German side are set to make another attempt to sign the Spurs player when the winter window opens.
The report details that Bundesliga club failed in a late summer bid to sign the 24-year-old but they are still keen on bringing Son to Germany.
Sky Sports announced via their official Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon that Spurs had turned away an offer from the Bundesliga side and that they won’t be selling the South Korea international this summer.
German publication Bild had claimed that Wolfsburg had agreed a £25.6million fee for the attacking midfielder, and settled personal terms with the player.
