He has been a key player for Tottenham since moving from Bayer Leverkusen, and the fans will be delighted to see that the club have tied him down to a new long-term contract.
Star striker Harry Kane has been linked with a move this summer, but Tottenham will now be hoping to keep the England international at the club.
Son and Kane have forged an excellent understanding, and the pair are integral to Spurs’ hopes of breaking back into the top four.
The 29-year-old South Korean had his best season for Tottenham last year, scoring 22 goals and 17 assists across all competitions.
Tottenham will need to keep players like him at the club if they want to return to the Champions League anytime soon.
Some Tottenham fans took to Twitter to share their reaction to his contract renewal – here is what they had to say.
