Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho suggests that Son Heung-min is close to signing a new long-term deal at the club.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has hinted that Son Heung-min is close to penning a new long-term deal with the club.

The 28-year-old has been in strong form for Spurs at the start of the 2020-21 campaign, scoring nine times and contributing four assists in eight appearances in all competitions.

A recent report claimed that the South Korea international is set to be offered a new five-year contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium worth £200,000 a week.

Mourinho has said that there is no immediate rush to sign the attacker to a new deal, but the Portuguese is confident that an agreement will soon be reached.

"I would love [him to sign a new contract]. 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," the Evening Standard quotes Mourinho as saying.

"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. It's normal.

"But it's a very calm situation because Sonny has three more years of contract. But I wish [for him to get a new contract]. He deserves one. The club knows that and sooner or later, without any pressure, they will arrive into a decision."

Son has scored seven times in five Premier League appearances this term.
