Son Heung-Min has signed a four-year contract extension to keep him at Tottenham Hotspur until June 2025.
Since arriving at Tottenham in August 2015 from Bayer Leverkusen, Son has gone on to net 107 goals in 280 appearances across all competitions, as well as christening the club’s new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with their opening domestic and European goals at the venue.
Son also won 2020 FIFA Puskas Award for his stunning solo goal against Burnley in December 2019 in which he ran up the pitch from Spurs’ half alone to score against Burnley, with the North Londoners going on to win that match 5-0 en route to an overall sixth-placed league finish in 2019-20 season.
Speaking on Son’s decision to extend his stay in North London for four more seasons, Tottenham’s Managing Director, Fabio Paratici spoke of feeling “pleased” to have secured the South Korean striker until June 2025 ahead of the team’s first season under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Paratici also praised Son for his “real positive impact” at Spurs both on and off the pitch and confessed to his excitement at retaining the 29 year-old as part of the club’s aim to challenge for titles in coming seasons after falling short under Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho in recent campaigns.
Son also commented on his decision to tie himself down for four more seasons, saying: “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.
“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.”
If Son completes the entirety of his new contract extension then he would of played a decade of his playing career in the Premier League come June 2025.
