Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are confident that Son Heung-min will sign a new contract with the club within the next week.
There have been some suggestions since the South Korean’s decision to change his representation might complicate talks.
However, the ever-reliable Gold has now confirmed that all parties want the deal to go through and that the South Korean could put pen to paper very soon.
“Son wants to sign a new deal, Spurs want him to sign a new deal, [Daniel] Levy, [Jose] Mourinho – everyone wants him to sign a new deal.
“As far as I’m aware, Spurs would like that to happen in the next seven days. They want it to happen this coming week. Whether it does or not is down to Son and [his] new representatives.”
Son left Austria in a private jet to fly back to London soon after South Korea’s friendly against Qatar yesterday, and it now looks like Spurs could soon tie down the 28-year-old for the foreseeable future as he wants to remain in North London.
Gold went on to add: “For Son, while he obviously wants to stay – and like I say, it will happen – this is [the] biggest contract of his career and, potentially, at , his last big contract. It has to be absolutely right, especially as now he’s hitting new levels in his game.
“So, it’s just about dotting the Is and crossing the Ts and just getting it right. But like I say, Spurs would like it to happen in the next week, and hope it will.
“But whether it does or not is very much down to whether [Son is] entirely satisfied with what’s on the table, but I think they’re getting there.”
