Tottenham turn attentions to new deal for Son Heung-min


Tottenham are prioritising a new deal for Son Heung-min after the attacker’s impressive run of form with South Korean expected to see sharp increase on £150,000-per-week wages

  • Tottenham will turn their attentions to securing the future of Heung-min Son
  • The Korean has become the priority with the club wanting him to extend deal
  • He currently earns in region of £150,000-per-week but can expect a pay-rise  

Tottenham will turn their attentions to securing the futures of their current squad, with Heung-min Son in line for a new contract.

Spurs navigated a successful transfer window, signing seven first-team players – culminating in last Thursday’s capture of Wales central defender Joe Rodon from Swansea.

But the club will now focus on trying to renegotiate the contracts of Jose Mourinho’s current squad, with signing Son to an extension understood to be a priority.

The 28-year-old has been a key player for Mourinho – who will hold an inquest into Sunday’s capitulation against West Ham at the training ground on Tuesday – since his arrival last year, scoring 18 goals for the Portuguese.

The Korean’s importance to Tottenham on the pitch has been underlined in recent weeks, Son scoring eight goals in seven games since the start of the current campaign.

Equally, however, Son retains a major significance within Tottenham’s lucrative commercial strategy given his iconic status in south-east Asia.

Son will enter the final two years of his contract at the end of this season. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has an unwritten rule in that he does not allow players to enter the final two years of their playing deals to avoid any possibility of losing them on free transfers.

Christian Eriksen was allowed to enter the final 12 months of his deal last season, Spurs eventually letting the Dane leave for Inter Milan in a cut-price deal of around £17million – way below the playmaker’s market value.

Indeed, Tottenham are keen to avoid any uncertainty regarding Son’s future at the club given his huge importance and the fact he is in the prime of his career.

The forward currently earns in the region of £150,000-per-week, but can expect a sharp increase as Spurs look to cement his position.

The futures of Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela, whose contracts expire at the end of next season, are also likely to be discussed in coming weeks.

Meanwhile, Mourinho will today collectively address his squad for the first time since watching his team squander a three goal lead against the Hammers.

Spurs were cruising but three goals in the final 10 minutes saw Mourinho’s side snatch a draw from the jaws of victory.

Sportsmail understands the Special One largely kept his counsel in the aftermath of Sunday’s collapse but will hold a debrief with his players – most of whom were off on Monday – on Tuesday in which he will discuss the circumstances surrounding the draw.

Mourinho said after the game that his side were not ‘psychologically strong enough’ to cope with West Ham’s late onslaught but his squad were largely kept guessing on his feelings.

The Tottenham boss will then turn his attentions to preparing his team for Thursday’s Europa League opener against LASK, in which Gareth Bale is expected to make his first start for the club since re-signing on loan last month.
