Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur is confident that they will tie South Korea national team captain Son Heung-min will sign a new deal.
Son has been a key figure for Spurs this term where he has scored 11 goals in the 16 games played so far and has formed a formidable partnership with Harry Kane in Spurs attack with the pair producing 13 goals between them this season.
Spurs wanted to tie the player to a new deal last year but the contract talks stalled after the player changed his agent; his current deal set to expire in 2023.
The Telegraph now reports that both parties are on the verge of an agreement with the 28-year-old set to be rewarded with a £200,000 a week deal at some point this season.
The player joined Spurs in 2015 from Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen and has gone to make more than 150 appearances for Spurs scoring 65 goals in the process.
