According to a report by the Daily Star, making a big contract claim, Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-min is close to agreeing a new deal in north London despite the noise surrounding Harry Kane and his future.
Tottenham closing in on welcome Son contract news
Indeed, as per this report, Son is in the final stages of agreeing an extension to his deal at Spurs which has been on the table since September – with the South Korean star looking ‘set’ to commit his future.
The 28-year-old has been brilliant at points this season, particularly earlier in the 2020/2021 campaign when he partnered Kane to devastating effect going forward.
Excluding the England skipper, Son has accumulated the team’s most goals (15) and assists (9) combined this season (WhoScored), and this development that Tottenham are closing in on a new deal for him could come as ‘welcome news‘, as explained by the Star.
Transfer Tavern take
Amid all the reports linking Tottenham with a plethora of new managers, Lilywhites will be hoping that they can indeed secure someone who is arguably their second most valuable player.
Still in his prime, Son has plenty of seasons ahead of him and his stay could prove even more crucial to Spurs if Kane opts for pastures new this summer.
Judging by his and Kane’s once formidable partnership, Spurs fans will be praying both men remain and rediscover that form for the 2021/2022 season, and perhaps agreeing a new deal for his mate can actually convince Kane his future belongs in north London too.
