Writing on Twitter, Fabrizio Romano has made an exciting Tottenham Hotspur contract claim involving Son Heung-min.
The Lowdown: Son new deal?
Tottenham have been touted with offering a new deal to Son for quite some time, with reports emerging as far back as October last year.
At one point, it looked a certainty that the South Korea star would put pen to paper on an extension in north London, but financial worries caused by coronavirus delayed the process (Evening Standard).
Links then emerged to a possible move away for Son amid the contract saga, with European powerhouses Bayern Munich even said to be eyeing a move at one point.
The Latest: Romano lifts lid on exciting Son development…
Now, writing on Twitter, reliable journalist Romano has made an exciting claim involving the 28-year-old.
Indeed, he believes that Son is ‘expected to sign soon’ and he is now ‘staying at Tottenham’ despite all the unrest surrounding superstar Harry Kane.
“Heung-min Son is expected to sign soon his new contract with Tottenham, negotiations going on since December and now all parties confident to complete the agreement,” Romano explained on social media.
“Son is staying at Tottenham, higher salary and new long-term agreement.”
The Verdict: Big boost for Spurs…
The threat of losing another star name alongside all the Kane links would have come as a worrying one for supporters, so this Romano claim comes as a big boost for Spurs.
Bar the Englishman, Son was arguably Tottenham’s player of the season over 2020/2021 – racking up 17 goals and 10 assists in 36 Premier League starts (WhoScored).
Tottenham keeping hold of Son will prove vital to their eventual new manager and any hopes of clinching silverware or qualifying for the Champions League next season.
It could also help convince other players to join the Lilywhites – a mass exodus of both superstars in Kane and Son would have potential transfer targets scratching their heads about the club’s future ambitions.
