Speaking to Football Insider, pundit Noel Whelan has been left thrilled by allegedly ‘massive’ news out of Tottenham Hotspur involving Son Heung-min.
The Lowdown: Spurs source drops exciting two-word Son message
According to a report by Football Insider, a Tottenham Hotspur source recently dropped the exciting two-word message ‘it’s done’ when referring to Son’s long-awaited new deal.
As explained by the outlet, he will earn a blockbuster £200,000-per-week and has committed his future to Spurs after talks with new manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
Irrespective of what happens with Harry Kane this summer, the South Korea superstar is now allegedly set to stay at Spurs after finalising his new contract.
The Latest: Whelan thrilled…
Reacting to this development, former Premier League striker Whelan has been left thrilled – explaining how the fans ‘absolutely love him’ and it is ‘massive’ that he has committed his future.
“When you put Harry Kane to one side, the driving force in their side is Son,” he told Football Insider.
“He has been so consistent over the years and a great servant to the club.
“Spurs will need somebody who stands up and changes the rhythm of a game if Kane leaves. Son is definitely capable of doing that. He is one of the strongest, mentally, out there.
“The fans absolutely love him, as has every manager he has worked under. This is massive that he’s committed to the project over the next few years.”
The Verdict: Huge news…
Amid the exit saga surrounding Kane in what could dominate summer discussion, this major claim that Son has now finalised a new deal at Tottenham is indeed ‘massive’.
The 28-year-old was, by some distance, the Lilywhites’ second-most crucial player over 2020/2021 after Kane – scoring 17 goals and assisting 10 others in 26 Premier League starts (WhoScored).
Only Kane managed a superior goals and assists record combined (23G, 14A), while Son averaged more key passes per 90 in the final third than any Spurs player including their star Englishman (WhoScored).
The forward staying in north London, as per FI, certainly comes as a big boost for Nuno Espirito Santo’s first season in charge.
