Son was given special permission to return to South Korea last month to undergo surgery on his broken arm.
He suffered the injury during Tottenham’s 3-2 win over Aston Villa on February 16.
And the South Korea international was ordered to self-isolate for two weeks on his return due to fears of coronavirus.
