JUST IN: Tottenham eager to avoid Harry Kane saga repeat as Son Heung-min decision made

Tottenham will exercise their option to extend Son Heung-min’s contract until June 2026.

Spurs are scared about losing their new captain after accepting a £100 million bid from Bayern Munich for Harry Kane during the summer transfer window. The 30-year-old England international was in the final year of his contract in north London.
Son, 31, is set to enter the final year of his contract next summer, although thanks to a provision, it isn’t believed to be an issue. Tottenham has the option to automatically extend the South Korean international’s contract for another 12 months, which they will do soon.

According to The Telegraph, it is unclear when Tottenham will activate the option in Son’s contract. Despite this, club officials are thought to be unconcerned about the issue and will not let their captain enter the final year of his contract next summer.

Son’s most current contract with Tottenham expires in July 2021. According to 90min, he may even be able to negotiate a new long-term contract with his current company. Son would be committing the remainder of his career to Spurs if he signed such a contract.

Son has been a key player for Tottenham since signing from Bayer Leverkusen eight years ago. He has 148 goals in 377 games, assisting them to the 2019 Champions League final and the 2021 Carabao Cup final.
The forward was also a member of Tottenham’s Premier League-winning squad in 2017. Despite the fact that he has yet to win a major award in north London, he is a three-time Tottenham Player of the Season and earned the Premier League Golden Boot in 2022.

Son was also named to the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) Team of the Year in 2021, and he received FIFA’s Puskas Award for the greatest goal scored during the 2019/20 season for his stunning effort against Burnley, dribbling from the left flank.

Son has three Premier League goals this season and is set to play a significant part under Postecoglou. “Sonny has great leadership qualities, both on and off the pitch, and is the ideal choice to become our new captain,” said Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino when naming him captain.

“Everyone knows he’s a world-class player, and everyone in the locker room holds him in high regard.” Within the squad, he transcends groups. That’s not only because he’s popular; it’s because of what he’s accomplished in the game, both here and as South Korea’s captain.”
