Son Heung-min has signed a new four-year contract with Tottenham, the club announced on Friday.
The Korean forward’s deal runs until the summer of 2025, which will keep him at the club for ten years after signing from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015.
The 29-year-old Son has scored 107 goals so far and provided 64 assists in 280 appearances in all competitions during his six seasons with the club, including the first Premier League and Champions League goals at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
Son Heung-min (above) has signed a new four-year contract which will see him stay with Tottenham until 2025.
He said: “It’s been a great honor to play here for six years, the Club has shown me a lot of respect and I’m obviously very happy to be here.
“It’s like home, especially with the fans, the players and the staff. There was no decision. It was easy. I am so happy to be here and will be so happy to see the fans again soon.”
Son – who won the Puskas Award and Premier League Goal of the Season for his stunning run and finish against Burnley – has entrusted his future to the club amid rumors of strike partner Harry Kane’s departure.
He netted a record 14 goal combinations last season with Kane, who has been linked with a £160million summer transfer to Manchester City.
Director Fabio Paratici added: “We are delighted to have signed a new long-term contract with Heung-min Son as we move towards the start of a new season and a new chapter for the Club with Nuno Espirito Santo.
“Everyone can see the real positive impact he has on the Club, both on and off the pitch, and we are delighted that he will play a part in what we strive to achieve in the coming years.”
