Football Insider have reported that Tottenham Hotspur owner, Joe Lewis has given the green light for Son Heung-min to be offered a new bumper contract.
Reports first emerged at the start of last month that Spurs were looking to hand the South Korean a pay-rise to bring him closer to the club’s highest earners as a reward for his improved run of form (The Athletic).
Jose Mourinho then hinted that he expects the forward to put pen to paper on a new deal as all parties wanted the contract to go through (Daily Mail).
Football Insider now claim that Lewis, who has the final say on all financial matters at Spurs, has approved a new contract for Son worth £200,000-a-week plus performance-related bonuses.
After receiving the approval of the Bahamas-based billionaire, it is said that the North Londoners are currently in talks with Son’s representatives.
The report asserts that Tottenham expect to have the 28-year-old tied up to a new deal by the end of the year.
