Ian McGarry has been talking on the latest edition of The Transfer Window podcast about news for various Premier League clubs.
One of the teams that he spent some time on was Tottenham Hotspur, and he revealed some more details on Heung-min Son’s proposed new deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The 28-year-old has been in sparkling form so far in the Premier League as he has scored eight goals and provided two assists, earning a brilliant average rating of 7.98/10 (as per WhoScored).
It seems that, according to McGarry, the South Korean will earn around £200,000 per week and Daniel Levy met recently with Son’s representatives to discuss the deal.
He said: “It’s our information that the contract negotiations between Tottenham Hotspur and absolutely in-form striker Heung-min Son have taken a bit of a step forward.
“Last night [Tuesday] Daniel Levy met with Son’s representatives from the agency CAA, they had a very lovely meal in central London, and the deal was discussed in general.
“The deal we are led to believe that is being offered to Son will be equal to captain Harry Kane’s, which means he will be earning around – if he agrees to it, obviously – £200,000 per week, which is an awful lot of money for Tottenham Hotspur.”

TIF Thoughts on Son’s new deal and McGarry’s information…
Jose Mourinho spoke about a potential new deal for Son recently, and he claimed that he hoped the 28-year-old would sign the deal soon, and it appears that looks to be edging closer.
Given that record, it was no surprise to us to hear that Mourinho wants Son to sign a new deal.
Now we will just have to see if McGarry’s information is correct and whether the South Korean does sign a new contract to keep him in north London for the foreseeable future.
