Alasdair Gold: I'd be surprised if Son doesn't sign new deal
Alasdair Gold has claimed that he’d be surprised if Heung-Min Son didn’t sign a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur in the very near future.
According to the football.london reporter, the ‘precious match-winner’ South Korea international was very close to signing a new deal earlier in the campaign. However, he claims the timing wasn’t right due to the recent Coronavirus pandemic.
Son has enjoyed a fairly successful personal season in north London this season. He scored 22 goals and registering a further 17 assists, however, fell off towards the end of the campaign.
His performances saw him earn links to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. But, the latest reports over a new contract being imminent will be music to the ears of Spurs fans.
The news about Son comes just a week or so after news broke over Harry Kane’s intentions to leave the Lilywhites this summer. In an interview with Gary Neville, the England international claimed he was in control of his future.
Son contract is good news for Tottenham’s future
The news over a proposed new contract for Son will be music to the ears of everyone associated with Tottenham.
The attacker’s influence over the course of this season has been nothing short of phenomenal. His 17 strikes and 10 assists in the Premier League contributed to a staggering 39.7% of the club’s total goals scored.
However, should the unthinkable happen and Kane does depart the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, keeping a hold of the other talisman in the team is crucial.
Losing one star player is bad, but, to lose both in the same transfer window would be devastating for whoever becomes the new manager. In that regard, the news of Son and his new contract at Tottenham is brilliant moving into next season.
