Tottenham will confirm a new contract for Heung-min Son at the end of the season, according to Eurosport.

They report that talks with the South Korean superstar are very advanced and it’s a case of when and not if he signs a new deal.

The report quotes Jose Mourinho saying it’s just a case of the ‘right moment’ in terms of confirming the extension.

That’s partially due to the impact of the pandemic on Premier League finances – creating uncertainty at all clubs, not just Spurs.

Son’s current deal ends in 2023, so there is not a genuine risk of the delay impacting his short-term future.

The report says that losing Son to another European club is simply not an option for Spurs.

That’s hardly surprising given his importance to their counter-attacking style under Jose Mourinho.

Harry Kane is the club’s talisman but he and Son have formed an outstanding double act.

It will be reassuring to Spurs fans to hear that the situation is under control and one of their top players looks all set to commit his future to the club again.

By the end of the season, Spurs will hope to have ended the trophy drought which has lasted since 2008.

If they’ve done that, there’s every chance Son will have played a huge part.
