Since moving to Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen in what was a £27 million deal back in 2015, Son has gone on to make 251 appearances for the north London side, scoring 99 goals and providing 54 assists along the way.
So far this season, the £81 million-rated 28-year-old has been in electric form over his 14 Premier League appearances for Jose Mourinho’s team, scoring 11 goals and providing four assists, averaging a highly impressive WhoScored match rating of 7.51 – ranking him at Tottenham’s second-best player in the top flight.
And, Son’s new contract was one topic of conversation on a recent episode of the Here We Go podacst, in which Romano claimed that, while both the player and the club want the new deal to be signed, it has not been completed just yet.
He said (23:28): “It’s not done yet, it’s not signed yet. But, the feeling of people around Son and people around Tottenham is the same – Tottenham want Son to extend his contract and Son wants to extend his contract with Tottenham.
“So, as we said last week, it was getting closer. Now I would say that we are really, really close to a positive solution. There is still something to be decided, if [the new deal is for] five or six years, for example, but really the agreement is getting closer.”
Do you think Son deserves to be paid the same as Harry Kane at Spurs?
TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments regarding Heung-min Son’s new contract…
As we can see from Romano’s comments, everything points towards Son committing his future to Tottenham, despite the fact that the deal has not been signed just yet.
And, considering how important the 28-year-old has proved to the Spurs side over the past few years, and, in particular, this season, the idea of the forward playing his football in Tottenham’s colours for the foreseeable future must be fantastic for fans of the club.
