Tottenham ‘to trigger Son Heung-min contract extension clause to avoid another summer saga like Harry Kane’

TOTTENHAM are set to trigger their option to extend Son Heung-Min’s contract, it’s been claimed.

The South Korea international has 18 months on his current deal with the North Londoners, whom he joined from Bayer Leverkusen eight years ago.

But Spurs placed a clause in the forward’s contract to extend his stay with them for an additional 12 months whenever the choose.

And according to The Telegraph, the Tottenham brass plan to exercise that clause in the coming months.

It’s claimed, however, that they’re “so relaxed over” Son’s future that they might wait until the end of the season to do so.

The 12-month extension means Son will be at the club until 2026 at the earliest and gives them an insurance policy that they didn’t have when it came to former skipper Harry Kane.

Spurs were all but forced to sell their former talisman to Bayern Munich this summer as he entered the final year of his contract.

The North Londoners pocketed £100million for the England skipper, who could have walked away from his boyhood club for nothing next summer.

Spurs fans, could, however, one day see Kane back at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as chairman Daniel Levy placed a buy-back clause in the agreement with Bayern.

Tottenham are flying high under new manager Ange PostecoglouREX

He said: “If Harry, one day, wants to come back to the Premier League and he wants to come to Tottenham, we would have the ability to repurchase him.

“Harry was a great servant to the club, an amazing player, someone that came from our academy, but you can’t look into the future. Who knows.”

Son has made a stellar start to the season under new boss Ange Postecoglou, scoring three goals in six appearances in all competitions.

Tottenham have made a strong start under their new gaffer winning four and drawing one of the Premier League matches.

They’ll be back in action on Sunday afternoon, travelling to the Emirates Stadium to take on Arsenal in the first North London Derby of the season.
