Tottenham Hotspur journalist Jack Pitt-Brooke has been sharing his thoughts on Lilywhites attacker Heung-min Son and a potential new contract for him at the north London club. 

This comes after Pitt-Brooke made an appearance on a recent episode of The Athletic’s Ornstein & Chapman Podcast where he spoke about a variety of topics concerning Tottenham.

Spurs have had quite a few odd players over the last ten years, but can you remember them? Here is the first one, who is this former Tottenham man?

On the subject of Son and the likelihood of him signing a new deal at the club, which has reportedly been in the pipeline for a while now, Pitt-Brooke had this to say on the matter. (18.18)

He said: “I still think that will happen, even though it hasn’t happened yet.

“I did a story back in October, saying that the deal was very close. Obviously, it has been held up for months and months and months. I expect it will happen, but I can’t see Tottenham selling him.”

Spurs signed Son back in the 2015 summer transfer window from German club Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of £27 million. Since then, the 28-year-old, who is currently valued at £76.5 million, has gone on to make 275 appearances for the north London club across all competitions in which he has managed to score 105 goals and provide 63 assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Jack Pitt-Brooke’s comments on Son and his potential new contract at Spurs…

Given how only Harry Kane has scored more goals, provided more assists and racked up a higher overall season WhoScored rating than Son so far in this current League campaign, it’s easy to assume that everyone at the north London club would be hoping that a deal can be made with the South Korean that would see him stay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium beyond his current contract that expires in 2023.

However, the fact that the proposed new contract has taken so long to be signed by Son could be a potential worry for Spurs fans, in our view.

Are you confident Son will sign a new deal at Spurs?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Taking into account how important Son has proven himself to be as an attacking threat in the team since his arrival at the club, Spurs’ main objective should be getting Son to sign a new deal and keep him for as long as possible as his goals and assists offer the team a great chance of success on the pitch, in our opinion.
