Alex McLeish has been left lauding the new deal that has been given to Son Heung-Min from Tottenham Hotspur.
The Lowdown: Son contract
As confirmed on their official website, Son has signed a new four-year contract at Spurs, which will keep him at the North London club until 2025.
Will Son stay at Tottenham next season?
Fabio Paratici is ‘delighted‘ with the deal, and the South Korea international himself claimed that it was ‘easy’ to sign a new contract with Nuno Espirito Santo’s team.
The Latest: McLeish lauds Son deal
Speaking to Football Insider, McLeish, a pundit who has previously been a manager in the Premier League, has lauded the new contract given to Son, and even admitted that he had doubts that he would sign on:
“I think that’s a brilliant re-signing.
“I had my doubts that Son would stay but that is brilliant news for Tottenham fans.
“He’s been an integral part of any of the marginal success Spurs have had over the past few years. Champions League finals and all that stuff.
“He’s shown some fantastic, world-class performances against top-class clubs. I remember the Man United 6-1 game a couple of years ago.
“He’s just a dream of a footballer, a dream of a player to have in your squad.”
The Verdict: Brilliant news
As McLeish rightfully puts it, Son signing a new deal is brilliant news for the Lilywhites.
The winger had such a good individual 2020/21 term, scoring no fewer than 22 goals and supplying a further 17 assists in 51 matches in total across all competitions (Transfermarkt).
He has shown on countless occasions how reliable of a player he is in the final third, and has been rightfully rewarded with a new bumper contract.
Nonetheless, it is so important for THFC to keep their best players at the club for as along as possible, and Son certainly fits into that category.
