According to The Athletic, Tottenham Hotspur are close to reaching an agreement with Heung-min Son on a new long-term deal.
Reports first broke on Monday that Daniel Levy was keen on tying the South Korean down to a new deal before the end of the season even though he still had two and a half years to run on his current contract (Telegraph).
The Athletic now suggest that the 28-year-old will put pen to paper on a deal which could bring him closer to the club’s top earners, such as Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele.
Spurs are said to be keen on rewarding Son for his improved form and want to give him a pay rise in order to recognise his importance to the team.

This is potentially a huge boost for Spurs, certainly bigger than any move we could have made in the transfer window. Son, in his current form, is one of the best players in the Premier League and we certainly cannot afford to go out and sign a player of his quality. The South Korean certainly deserves to be on par with our highest earners.
