Tottenham forward Son Heung-Min has brushed aside speculation over his future amid reported interest from Bayern Munich, according to reliable journalist Ronan Murphy.
Reports surfaced last week linking the Bundesliga champions with a move to take the South Korean back to Germany, where he played for Bayer Leverkusen and Hamburg.
After Son helped his country win the Asian Games, he earned exemption from 21 months’ military service, guaranteeing his availability and therefore increasing potential interest from elsewhere.
According to Italian website Calcio Mercato, the 26-year-old was high up on Bayern’s list of players they want to target on January.
Son may still be on that list, but Murphy posted quotes showing that he has no intention of leaving Tottenham and feels he has plenty of work still to do at the club.
“I recently renewed my contract with Tottenham and I believe I need to focus here to more for the team,” he said, according to a tweet from the journalist.
“I’m happy at Tottenham,” he added.

Son featured on Saturday as Spurs swept to a 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in what was just his fourth appearance for the Londoners this season.
Tottenham allowed him to participate in the Asian Games and will hope to reap the rewards of that decision now he will be able to see out the remainder of his contract without having to leave for military service.
News that Son himself remains committed to Spurs and has no intention of leaving will come as a huge relief for everybody connected with the club.
The South Korean will now be keen to get back into the sort of form that helped Tottenham finish third in the Premier League last season.
Now in fifth after the win over Brighton, Spurs travel to Huddersfield Town on Saturday before hosting Barcelona on October 3.
