Tottenham Hotspur are confident that Son Heung-Min will agree to a new deal with the club despite the COVID-19 pandemic causing complications with regards to negotiations, according to The Telegraph.
Since joining Spurs in 2015 from Bayer Leverkusen, the South Korean has established himself as one of the best wingers in world football. He scored his 100th goal for Spurs last week in their 3-0 Premier League win over Leeds United.
Son and strike partner Harry Kane have formed a destructive partnership in recent seasons, and that could lead Spurs to a first domestic success under Jose Mourinho this season.
However, the report added that there have been no complications in negotiations between Son’s representatives and Spurs and that the club expects a deal to be reached soon.
The report added that Son is keen to stay at Spurs beyond his current contract, which ends in 2023. The South Korean’s performances will likely be rewarded with a healthy pay rise.
Given the uncertainty over the long-term financial burdens caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is not hard to see why clubs are hesitant to announce new deals.
Son has been dedicated to Spurs since arriving in North London, and it is unlikely that he will leave the club on bad terms.
