Tottenham has announced that Son Heung-min has signed a new contract with the club.
Since joining from Bayer Leverkusen in August 2015, the 29-year-old captain of the South Korean national team has scored 107 goals in 280 appearances across all competitions. He has just signed on until 2025. Son and Harry Kane have formed a productive partnership, and they scored 14 goals together last season – a Premier League record in a single season.
“It was already a big honour to play here for six years, the club have showed me massive, massive respect and obviously I’m very happy to be here,” Son said in a statement to the club’s website.
“It’s like home, especially with the fans, the players, the staff. There was no decision. It was easy. I’m so happy to be here and will be so glad to see the fans again soon.”
Son was a fans’ favourite and named to the PFA Team of the Season along with England captain Kane as Spurs finished seventh in the league in the 2020/21 season. In a video posted on Twitter, Spurs announced Son had signed fresh terms, along with a message in his native Korean language that reads “his story continues”.
Nuno Espirito Santo, Tottenham’s new coach, will lead the club in the inaugural edition of the Europa Conference League. Pierluigi Gollini completed his medical with Tottenham during a visit to Milan on Thursday. Spurs are on the verge of completing the signing of the Atalanta keeper.
In their inaugural Premier League fixture for next season, they take on Manchester City at home on August 15.
