Speaking to Sky Sports, pundit Sue Smith has raved over a ‘huge boost’ out of north London involving Tottenham Hotspur superstar Son Heung-min.
The Lowdown: Son contract confirmed…
Reports had indicated that the 28-year-old agreed to put pen to paper on a new deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Football Insider recently reporting that terms had been finalised and a deal ‘done’.
Now, as announced today, Son has indeed extended his deal in north London – signing a four-year contract which will run until 2025.
The Latest: Smith raves over ‘huge’ Son boost…
Speaking to Sky, Smith has raved over the announcement whilst predicting Spurs supporters will certainly be ecstatic with the development.
As well as this, she describes the news as a ‘huge boost’ for the Lilywhites.
“I think it’s a huge boost for everyone linked with Spurs,” she explained to the broadcaster.
“It’s just a huge boost like I say, he’s such a good player to watch, I really enjoy watching him every week in the Premier League.
“He’s vital to Spurs’ attack, I think when they go forward in terms of his running with the ball, his running without the ball, his assists, his goals.
“He’s a really intelligent player and Spurs fans will certainly be happy that he’s been tied down.”
The Verdict: Absolutely massive…
Given Spurs supporters have been waiting for the better part of 9 months for Son to officially extend his stay, with reports emerging as far back as October 2020, this certainly comes as massive bit of news.
The South Korea star was, by some distance, Tottenham’s second-most important player behind Kane and even managed to get into the PFA Premier League Team of the Year.
Amid the noise surrounding Kane and his future, news of Son committing his future is definitely a welcome update – if the talisman does depart, Son will become the face of the club.
