Tottenham forward Son Heung-min has signed a new four-year contract at the club, keeping him in north London until 2025.
Son, 29, joined Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen in August 2015, and has scored 107 goals and claimed 64 assists in 280 appearances in all competitions since. He’s developed into one of the Premier League’s finest players during his spell, reaching the Champions League final with the club in 2019.
Son said of the confirmation: “It was already a big honour to play here for six years, the club have showed me massive, massive respect and obviously I’m very happy to be here.
“It’s like home, especially with the fans, the players, the staff. There was no decision. It was easy. I’m so happy to be here and will be so glad to see the fans again soon.”
Fabio Paratici, the club’s new managing director, added: “We are pleased to have agreed a new long-term contract with Son as we move towards the start of a new season and a new chapter for the club with Nuno Espirito Santo.

Erik Lamela is set to leave Spurs in a part-exchange deal for Sevilla’s Bryan Gil, but his legacy at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is a divisive one.
Antoine Griezmann’s agent has met with Premier League sides to discuss a Barcelona exit, but Atletico Madrid remain favourites to re-sign him.
“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.”
This summer looks like being a busy one for Spurs, with Paratici and new boss Nuno already active in the transfer window.
While there’s expected to be a number of new arrivals – with the signings of Bryan Gil, Cristian Romero and Pierluigi Gollini all understood to be edging near to completion – there’ll also be plenty of departures.
Erik Lamela is bound for Sevilla, though the club have denied that Harry Kane is close to joining Manchester City after reports broke on Thursday night of a £160m move.
