Tottenham Spurs forward Son Heung-min will finish up his military training during the Premier League football season suspension while at home in South Korea.
Son Heung-min suffered a fracture during a match between Tottenham and Aston Villa in February before later returning to South Korea for personal reasons in March.
South Koreans are expected to carry out 2 years of national service but there is an exemption for those that win medals at the Olympics or gold medals at the Asian Games as Son did at the 2018 Asian Games.
Son now only has to complete 3 weeks of basic training followed by 544 hours of community service over 34 months.
With his basic training scheduled to begin on April 20 on the island of Jeju ,as well as the progress of his recovery since sustaining the fractured arm, it is expected that Son will be ready to join the Tottenham squad whenever the Premier League season resumes.
This is good news for Jose Mourinho who did not expect to see the South Korean striker returning to the squad for the rest of this season.
Son has made 32 appearances for Tottenham this season across all competitions, scoring a total of 16 goals.
The news of his return could not come at a better time as Jose Mourinho has been battling to find replacements for his forward line after losing both Son and Harry Kane this season.
Son will only have to complete 3 weeks of military training as he has been assigned to the Marine Corps
