According to The Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur have decided to postpone non-urgent contract negotiations with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and any other first-team stars due to the financial uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Previous reports indicated that Tottenham were in advanced stages of negotiations with Son over a new deal.

It was claimed that the South Korean was going to be rewarded for his good run of form and that his salary was set to be brought up to par with the club’s highest earners, Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele.

The Independent previously claimed that Tottenham had begun talks with Kane over a new deal and that the striker was receptive to the idea of extending his stay at the club.

However, The Standard have now said that Spurs are not willing to agree on any new contracts while the club’s long-term financial outlook remains unclear.

The report suggests that Tottenham’s revenue have been decimated by the pandemic and they have subsequently put ‘non-urgent contracts’, including with Son and Kane on ice.

It looks increasingly likely that the vast majority of the season could be played behind closed doors. If that is the case, the club will incur substantial losses, which will be difficult to deal with given the debt the club owes on the stadium. As great as it would be to see the likes of Kane and Son commit their futures, one can certainly understand the club’s hesitance due to their financial uncertainty.
