Tottenham Hotspur are likely to offer Son Heung-min a short-term contract rather than a long-term deal of three years or more, according to local reports.

On Aug. 18 (KST), Team Talk introduced 10 players whose contracts are set to expire in the summer of 2025 and predicted their possible departure or retention. As for Son Heung-min, the report predicted that Tottenham will offer him a new contract, but it is likely to be a short-term deal.

“Despite not being at his best in the second half of the season, it’s a no-brainer that Son will re-sign with Spurs,” the publication said. However, “the pressure to lead the team’s attack after Harry Kane’s departure eventually took its toll on Son. His participation in the Asian Cup in the middle of the season may have also contributed to his late-season slump,” he said, adding that his second-half performances were unimpressive.

“The most important thing for Tottenham is to sign a quality No. 9 striker this summer so that Son can return to his natural position on the left wing,” he said, emphasizing the need to sign a central striker, and predicting that Son will sign a short-term deal with Spurs, saying, “It is unlikely that Son will sign a contract with Spurs for more than two or three years.”

“He has scored 17 goals this season despite not playing at his normal level. With 162 goals in 407 games for Tottenham, he is fifth on the club’s all-time goalscoring list,” and concluded with a ‘keep’ rating.

Only three of the 10 players featured by the media were rated ‘keep’, including Son Heung-min, backup goalkeeper Fraser Forster and Ben Davies, who can play left back and center back.

Ryan Sessegnon, Japhet Tanganga, Sergio Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Giovanni Rosselso, Tanguy Ndombele and Troy Parrott were all rated as sell or loan.

Son Heung-min’s re-signing with Tottenham seems almost certain. We’ve covered the possibility of Son re-signing with Tottenham many times before. The main question was how long the contract would be for.

On February 2, Football Insider reported, “Tottenham are confident of re-signing Son Heung-min. They are confident of signing the captain to a new 먹튀검증 contract after the end of the season,” but explained that the ‘new contract’ is not a long-term deal but a simple exercise of the contract extension option.

“Son’s contract with Tottenham expires in June 2025. Tottenham have an option to extend it for another 12 months. Son will play for Tottenham for the rest of his career, at least for the rest of his prime.”

I couldn’t help but feel that Tottenham were taking a ‘wait and see’ approach to Son Heung-min. Under his existing contract, the last time Spurs can sell him for a fee is this summer’s transfer window. In the winter, they will be free to negotiate with other clubs under the Bosman rule.

Therefore, it seems likely that Tottenham will exercise the option to extend his contract and keep him for another year and then see what happens, whether it is to re-sign him or sell him for a fee.

TeamTalk have since also suggested that Son’s time at Tottenham could be coming to an end, saying that two to three years is the maximum and that he is unlikely to sign a contract beyond that. Born in 1992, Son is 31 years old, which means he may not be playing for Spurs when he turns 34.

Meanwhile, Son has 17 goals and nine assists this season, which puts him on the verge of joining the 10-goal, 10-assist club for the season, but he hasn’t provided an assist. In a recent game against Manchester City, he missed a crucial one-on-one chance to end their hopes of qualifying for next season’s UEFA Champions League.

“I have to take responsibility for not scoring a goal for the team at such a crucial opportunity,” Son said.

Son will look to make it 10-10 in the final Premier League match of the 2023-24 season against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England, on Tuesday at 0:00 am.
