With the dust having settled from Tottenham’s transfer business, The Telegraph claim that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will now prioritise getting Heung-min Son to commit a new contract.

Son has started the season on fire and is currently on top of the Premier Leauge’s goalscoring charts along with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, with seven goals in the first five league games.

The South Korean penned a contract extension with the North Londoners two years ago and his current deal runs until 2023 and the report reveals that there is no immediate rush at Tottenham to sort his contract situation out.

However, it is said that Levy wants to get the 28-year-old to commit to a new deal before the end of the season as he does not want a repeat of the Christian Eriksen situation wile also preventing any threat of the top European clubs trying to lure Son away at the end of the season.

The report claims that the forward is set for a significant pay rise to his current £110,000-a-week salary and there are no internal fears at the club over Son’s long-term future.

Spurs Web Opinion

We are extremely lucky that both of our two biggest superstars in Son and Kane seem to be humble and loyal characters. You can tell that both players love the club and it would mean a lot more for them to win trophies with Spurs than another club. Hopefully, we win silverware this season and convince both players to sign on the dotted line sooner rather than later.
