Tottenham have given a new four-year contract to Son Heung-min and maintain they have no plans to sell Harry Kane.

Son has signed a deal that is due to extend his stay at Spurs to 10 years. The 29-year-old, who joined from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015, has scored 107 goals in 280 games and formed a lethal partnership with Kane.

“The club have showed me massive, massive respect and obviously I’m very happy to be here,” the South Korea forward said. “It’s like home, especially with the fans, the players, the staff. There was no decision. It was easy.”

Tottenham’s managing director of football, Fabio Paratici, described it as an important move at the start of a new era under Nuno Espírito Santo. He said of Son: “Everyone can see the real positive impact he has on the club, both on and off the field, and we are delighted that he will play a part in what we are trying to achieve in the coming years.”

Kane is keen to leave to win trophies and Manchester City have made a bid to sign the striker. The Sun has reported that Kane is poised for a £160m transfer to City after Tottenham’s chairman, Daniel Levy, agreed he could join another Premier League club, but it is understood that Spurs’ stance that the England captain is not for sale has not changed.

Kane, who turns 28 on Wednesday, has three years left on his contract. He is on holiday after England’s Euro 2020 campaign and is due to report for training on August 2nd. Spurs begin their Premier League campaign against City on August 15th. - Guardian
