Spurs remain confident that South Korean striker Son Hueng-min will sign a new contract with the club.
He remains under contract in North London until 2023, but they have been trying to pin him down to a contract extension, which would make him amongst the club’s highest earners.
However, the club then decided to put non-urgent contract discussions on hold because of the pandemic, and the situation remains unresolved. Like all Premier League clubs, Tottenham’s revenues have been decimated by almost a year of playing games with no crowds, and given the prevailing uncertainty, holding discussions with star players is very difficult at such time.
Nevertheless, Jose Mourinho believes Son will sign his new deal “when the sun shines again for the world”.
Son scored his 13th Premier League goal of the season on Sunday as Spurs returned to winning ways against strugglers West Bromwich Albion at the North London Stadium, with a fit again harry Kane getting the other.
