Tottenham Hotspur’s squad are now on their summer break following a friendly against Premier League rivals Newcastle United in Melbourne last week. 

The Lilywhites returned from Australia and have now begun their delayed summer break, although several players will go straight to international duty with the European Championships taking place in Germany this summer.

Manager Ange Postecoglou enjoyed a relatively successful first season in charge of the club, guiding Spurs to a fifth-placed finish and qualification for next season’s Europa League.

The former Celtic boss will likely be keen to bolster his squad this summer, though, and those in charge of the club have reportedly made a huge decision on the future of one of their stars.

As per The Athletic, the North London club are set to trigger a one-year extension to captain Son Heung-Min’s contract.

Son’s current contract is set to expire next summer

The 31-year-old’s contract is currently set to expire next summer, but the report suggests that the club will exercise an option to add a further 12 months to the deal.

The South Korea international joined Tottenham from German side Bayer Leverkusen nine years ago, and has since played more than 400 appearances for the club.

Son had formed a strong partnership with Harry Kane prior to the England captain’s departure last summer, and the South Korean succeeded Kane as Spurs’ captain before the start of last term.

In total he has scored 162 goals for the Lilywhites, as well as providing 84 assists.

The forward was linked with a move to Saudi Arabia last term, before emphatically ruling out the rumoured move.

He then went on to play 35 times in the Premier League last term, netting 17 times and registering 10 assists.
