Son Heung signs new four-year deal at Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-Min has signed a new four-year contract with the club, while Harry Kane has been linked with a transfer elsewhere.

Spurs have had a turbulent summer, with Kane linked with a move to Manchester City, new coach Nuno Espirito Santo, and director of football Fabio Paratici all being appointed.

Despite City’s interest in Kane, sources informed ESPN that they are willing to wait a year to get their ideal striker if they cannot pry him away from Spurs. Kane, who has three years left on his deal, has also piqued the curiosity of Manchester United and Chelsea.

Son, 29, has forged a lethal relationship with Kane, scoring a combined 40 goals in the Premier League last season, helping the squad to a seventh-place finish.

He joined Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015, and in 280 appearances for the club, he has scored 107 goals and assisted on another 64.

“It was already a big honour to play here for six years, the club have showed me massive, massive respect and obviously I’m very happy to be here,” Son said.

“It’s like home, especially with the fans, the players, the staff. There was no decision. It was easy. I’m so happy to be here and will be so glad to see the fans again soon.”
