Tottenham are set to open talks with Heung-Min Son over a new contract in the coming weeks, according to Sky Sports.

Son has been in sensational form over the last two seasons, scoring 21 goals in all competitions in the previous campaign and 18 so far this term.

The South Korean’s current contract expires in the summer of 2020 – Sky Sports claims discussions over a new deal have been pencilled in.

Not long ago, Son was struggling to cement a place in Spurs’ starting line-up.

But his impressive goal return has changed his situation, making him an integral member of the first-team squad.

That’s set to continue while Son fills in for Harry Kane as Tottenham’s main goal threat.

Kane damaged ankle ligaments during last weekend’s 4-1 win at Bournemouth and has been ruled out until next month.

Son was pushed into a central role in Kane’s absence and scored twice at the Vitality Stadium.

The 25-year-old is likely to start up front again in Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final against Swansea.

Spurs fans will be delighted when Son inevitably puts pen to paper on a new contract – he certainly deserves it.
