Just as Erik Lamela, the South Korea star Heung-Min Son has also signed a new contract for Tottenham on Friday. He has signed a five-year contract.
Son has steadily taken on a more prominent role under Mauricio Pochettino.
The South Korea international, who joined from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015, has pledged his future to the London club until the end of the 2022-23 season.
Son has steadily taken on a more prominent role under Mauricio Pochettino . He has featured 37 times in the Premier League last term, including 27 starts. His 26 league goals over the past two seasons have eased the burden on star striker Harry Kane and helped Spurs to consecutive top-three finishes.
Son became the top Asian goalscorer in Premier League history with the winner against Crystal Palace last November. He surpassed the tally of 19 set by former Manchester United man Park Ji-Sung.
An international since 2010, Son scored twice for South Korea at the recent World Cup in Russia. He opened his account in a 2-1 loss to Mexico in Group F. The second came in stoppage time of a famous 2-0 victory over Germany. The win also confirmed the reigning champions’ shock early exit from the tournament.
Son joins Kane and Pochettino in agreeing fresh terms at Spurs since last season. Pochettino signed a five-year contract in May, while Kane’s new six-year deal was confirmed last month.
Fresh from securing Champions League football for next season, Tottenham will return to North America for their pre-season tour. Spurs join fellow Premier League sides Manchester United and Liverpool in competing in this year’s iteration of International Champions Cup.
Tottenham kick off their pre-season preparations with a meeting with Roma in California on July 26. After that, they will be taking on Barcelona on July 29.
