Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is confident that the club can put a new deal in place with Heung-min Son despite the 28-year-old forward already having a contract through to 2023.
There has been talk of paperwork already being put in place, with Son’s signature all that is required in order to get things over the line.
The Portuguese believes a positive update will be delivered on that front at some stage in the near future, with Mourinho looking to keep the South Korean in his current surroundings for as long as possible.
Mourinho told reporters when quizzed on the reports of a new contract being agreed: “I would love that.
“Son has three years of contract so it's not like we're in an extreme situation of everybody being worried.
“It's more that Son loves it here, I believe that he would like to commit his future to the club for a long time.
“Everybody at the club is totally in love with this player and this boy and is trying also to make him feel part of the furniture.
“It's normal the club tries to go from three years to four or five or six, I don't know.
“He deserves one, and the club knows that sooner or later without any pressure they will arrive into a decision.”
