“It’s happening, 100%” – BBC man gives encouraging update on attacker with 17 goals and 10 assists

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham might be aiming to secure a substantial fee for their captain Heung-min Son this summer, according to former Spurs defender and BBC pundit Alan Hutton.

The club could consider renewing the South Korean star’s contract by activating an extension clause.

Speaking to Football Insider, Hutton emphasised the strategic importance of not letting Son’s contract run down.

The 31-year-old attacker’s current deal extends until 2025, with an option for Tottenham to prolong it by an additional 12 months. However, the club has yet to make an official decision regarding this clause.

Hutton believes that triggering the extension would be a wise move for Spurs, ensuring they can maximise Son’s transfer value if a future sale becomes necessary.

He commented on Son’s critical role at Tottenham, highlighting his significant contributions both as a striker and from the left wing.

“I think the club has put the clause in his contract to safeguard them. They’ll go and take that option up. It’s happening, 100%. He’s huge for Spurs.

That will give you two seasons – and if someone comes in for him in that time, you can get a fee that Tottenham feel he is valued at.”

“I think he’s still got a lot to give, whether that’s in the striker position or from the left. We don’t know what Tottenham are going to do with the striker position.

We’ve had the rumours linking them with Toney, and I don’t know how true that is. We need options.

“But Son is the captain, and to let him run down his contract – I don’t think it makes sense for anybody.”

Son has been an important figure at Spurs since joining the club.

And under manager Ange Postecoglou last season, he stepped up his game as captain, filling in the void left by Kane and finishing as Spurs’ top scorer with 17 goals and 10 assists in 35 Premier League appearances .

His performance underscored his importance to the team, both in terms of leadership and attacking prowess.

Since joining the club, he has scored 162 goals and assisted another 84 in 408 games.

Currently in the final year of his contract, Son’s future at Tottenham remains uncertain despite ongoing discussions about a possible extension.

By activating the extension clause, Tottenham would secure an additional 12 months, giving the club leverage in potential transfer negotiations and ensuring they could receive a transfer fee reflective of Son’s true value if a suitable offer arises.
