Fabrizio Romano: Spurs On The Brink Of Announcing New Deal
By Harry Hotspur -

According to the widely respected Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano, Heung-min Son is close to agreeing on new terms for a contract extension with Tottenham. Whilst Fabrizio believes negotiations have been underway since December, my understanding is that Sony has been dragging his feet over a new deal since just before Mauricio Pochettino left the club.

For me, if this new agreement can get over the line, then it will send out a strong message from the club when it comes to retaining the services of elite talent. Quite what influence this might have on Harry Kane is another matter. The England captain’s future remains shrouded in doubt, and I get the sense that any exit will be made very close to the final knockings of the transfer window’s deadline day.

The doomsday scenario for Tottenham is that Sonny also reviews his position and looks for his own opportunity to finally get his hands on some silverware. At Spurs, the chances of winning something tangible look bleak, and if the South Korean decides to stay, then it effectively says that the 28-year-old, who is 29 next month, is happy with his lot.

The only logical conclusion is that Sonny doesn’t read this blog.

‘retaining services of our elite talent’. Well 1 out of 2 is better than nothing I suppose because we only have 2 players that can be labelled elite.

This is great news for us but I feel for the guy. I wouldn’t begrudge him a move. He deserves it. He is a proper pro.

With 11 million South Korean fans going with him i would wager Son is Tottenham’s biggest on field asset in a financial sense.
I don’t think anyone could moan if he became the clubs top earner.
Jam Tomorrow knows where his bread is buttered and would not sell Son before his contract runs out.

Marcus “Messi” Edwards apparently on his way to Sporting for 12m euros. I believe Spurs had a sell-on clause? There’s gotta be at least a couple mill euros in it for us. In that case, Levy is closing in on 20m in player sales already. Sissoko, Dier, Lamela and Winks to follow soon hopefully.

I’d like to think so but who is going to pay their level of wages and Levy’s wishful transfer fees? Does Levy do “must go” sales? Will these prima donnas accept a drop in wages and a mid-lower table club or will their egos tell them to sit out their contracts and/or try and drive the new guy out?

I wonder how much of this is Jose related? conspiracy Theory on its way….it was Clear Sonny not happy under Jose (Son used to smile all the time), however, its hard to argue that he looked amazing with Kane for a while, bu the jose started to drop him and Son looked very un-interested. Jose then suddenly dropped for who knows what reason (was not football related as basically, if it was, would have been end of the season (no manager was going to turn things around with so few games left) or a new full time manager was lined up, chomping at the bit to get in before pre-season. So I think player power was key, and I wonder if Sonny said he was not even willing to talk to Levy while Jose was in the seat meaning Levy needed to out him before transfer windown opened.

I doubt it. Son has just had his best season with Spurs in terms of goals and appearances. Hardly something to be annoyed with Jose about. And i have no idea what you mean about Son getting dropped. Jose never dropped Son. Poch used to always sub Son at 70 mins or so. Jose frequently left him on for the full 90. Son’s partnership with Kane was absolutely key to Jose. Is this some more Jose the proven serial winner Mourinho bashing?

He was sacked before he could take charge of the final that he had guided Spurs to.

Bye, Penalties, brentford wasn’t it. I think any of us could have guided them through that 🙂 I thought the point of winning the carabou cup was to ignite a winning mentality rather than just the kudos of the trophy, and by sacking Jose at that time, Levy was able to extinguish that spark and save money.

He looked seriously unhappy under Jose as did a few others, player power or Levy’s realisation that it wasn’t working, either way, the inevitable parting had to happen.

Keeping Son will help take the sting off losing Kane.

Perhaps it’s suddenly been agreed because the whole Kane business has spooked Levy into action? The haggling over pennies had to stop. 🤔

Gimme the hopium 😉

I worry the reality is we are simply paying more for players to just turn up ( Like Bale getting paid to undertake pre euro’s fitness training at the world class training centre ™ )
Its clear Levy has no on field ambitions for the football team so the players who do sign up are effectively saying they’re ok with that. Whilst a team of foootball mercenaries is briefly appealing to the juvenile in me, its more likely to turn out like late 70s Tampa Bay Rowdies than Escape to Victory
