Daniel Levy working to extend contract of major first-team player
Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy is looking to tie Heung-min Son to a new contract, according to The Telegraph.
Tottenham made a major statement by signing key players in the transfer window. As the transfer window is closed, Spurs are not looking to tie one of the major players in the squad to a new long term deal.
Son has made an excellent start to the 2020/21 season. He is currently the top scorer in the league, along with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, with seven goals to his name in the first five fixtures.
At Tottenham, he has flourished to be an excellent goalscorer, sharing the scoring burden with Harry Kane.
He signed his current deal two years ago and it runs until 2023. However, Levy is already looking to tie the South Korean forward to a new deal as he doesn’t want any repeat of the Christian Eriksen situation. Tottenham had to sell Eriksen for cheap as his contract ran down to the last six months.
However, there are no fears over Son’s long term future at the North London and it is expected that the negotiations will be over before the end of this season.
Son is set for a significant pay rise to his current £110,000-a-week salary.
