Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills has backed Tottenham to Son Heung-min to commit to a new contract to keep him away from the hands of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
The Tottenham forward, who took home the PFA Player of the Month award for October, is arguably one of the most in-form players in Europe at the moment.
He has improved almost every year since joining Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen back in 2015 and seems to have reached new heights once again this season.
The South Korean already has eleven goals and five assists to his name in all competitions this sesason (transfermarkt.com) and seems to show no signs of slowing down.
He opened Tottenham’s scoring in the 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday with a typically well-timed run and composed finish.
Reports indicate that Spurs are hopeful of sorting out the 28-year-old’s contract soon (Alasdair Gold via ThisIsFutbol) and Mills believes that the North Londoners will do everything possible to get Son to commit his future as he could play for any side in the world.
The pundit told Football Insider: “He’s an exceptional player. When you go back to that period when Kane was injured and he was carrying Spurs, scoring all the goals.
“It’s not easy at times when he goes away on international duty and he’s had to deal with issues around national service.
“He’s an outstanding player, he’s absolutely magnificent the way that he plays. He’s so consistent he’s one of the first names on the team sheet.
“His energy levels are superb, his fitness levels are absolutely brilliant. He’s a humble guy, he’s the model pro. Everybody wants a Son in your team for what he offers.
“I’m pretty sure his contract will be sorted very soon because if it’s not Tottenham stand to lose an exceptionally talented player.”
