Duncan Castles has been speaking on the latest edition of The Transfer Window podcast about news regarding a few Premier League clubs.
One of the clubs that Castles spent some time on was Tottenham Hotspur, and he revealed some more details on the proposed new contract for Heung-min Son.
Jose Mourinho claimed in October that Son would sign a new deal soon, but while there has yet to be any confirmation, Castles revealed that the Tottenham boss would like to see this contract sorted – and all the signs point to that happening.
He said: “So, Mourinho would like to see this tied down.
“Son has told teammates he’s happy at Tottenham; he sees himself winning titles there.
“So, I think there’s pressure from Mourinho on Levy to get it completed.
“From what I understand, it’s not done, but it’s headed very much in that direction.”
Do you think Son will sign a new deal?
Yes, he will
No, he won't
TIF Thoughts on Son’s new deal and Castles’ information on negotiations…
Son has started the season superbly in the Premier League, with eight goals and two assists and an average rating of 7.83/10 (as per WhoScored) from his first eight appearances.
Since Mourinho took over at Spurs nearly a year ago, Son has played 39 games, scored 20 goals and provided 14 assists, so you can see why the former Chelsea boss apparently wants to keep Son so badly.
Son actually has under three years left on his current deal, but the new contract will reportedly see him earn £200,000 per week – and we think many Spurs fans will be hoping that it is concluded quickly given the level of his current performances.
