Darren Bent has said Tottenham may struggle to keep hold of Son Heung-min if the striker’s current form continues.

Son has scored in each of his last three appearances since returning from the Asian Cup, bagging crucial goals in victories over Watford, Newcastle United and Leicester City at Wembley.

On Sunday, it looked as if it wasn’t Son’s day as he was booked for diving in the first half and struggled to carve out any clear-cut opportunities for himself throughout.

But in stoppage time, the Korean broke from his own half and made it 3-1 to put the game to bed for Spurs.

Son has stepped up as Tottenham’s newest talisman in the absence of Harry Kane, something former Spurs striker Bent thinks could attract interest from elsewhere.

“Son is an amazing player,” Bent told talkSPORT. “Everything about him, the way he plays the game, he’s such a threat and he can finish with his left and right feet.

“The only worry for Spurs in the next few years is losing some of these players.

“People are going to look at Son and think, ‘he’s a lot better than we thought’, and he offers so much more than just scoring goals with his work rate and creativity.

“Just the way he seems to be around the place – you can see the Spurs fans love him and his team-mates love him. You can’t often buy that sort of player.”

Son signed a new contract last summer and seems to be very happy at Tottenham. What’s more, there have been no rumours of interest from other clubs.

While the 26-year-old just seems to get better and better, Spurs fans needn’t worry about his future for now.



  1. What many people forget is just how hard Spurs fought to sign Son, then how much patients Poch had with him as he got used to the Premier League, then what did Spurs do when he was at last chance saloon and possibly facing military service for 2yrs – they gave him a 5yr contract to show faith in him and Sonny knows that.
    Sonny is staying!!

  2. For the last 2 seasons so called football pundits have mouthed off about Tottenham team breaking up and yet there still together and signing new contracts .so many off these pundits get there money so easy they no nothing that’s going on at the football club
