Son Heung-min contract green lit by Tottenham owner with a conclusion in sight

Tottenham are reportedly ready to offer Son Heung-min a new contract worth around £200,000-a-week, which would move him close to the salary earned by Harry Kane.

Son's importance to Spurs has grown over the years and he is now widely considered to be one of the best forwards in the top flight.

The South Korean has enjoyed a stunning start to the season with eight goals and two assists in their opening seven games and his partnership with Kane has blossomed into the most potent duo in the league.

Such form is likely to attract major interest from top clubs and in an effort to keep hold of the 28-year-old, Spurs are braced to approach him with a bumper offer.

According to Football Insider, owner Joe Lewis has given his approval to offer Son a contract of around £200,000 a week.

The report says talks with Son's representatives are at an advanced stage and the deal could be wrapped up by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale says relief was the overriding emotion after scoring his first goal for Spurs since returning in the summer.

The Welsh star has made a slow start to life back at Spurs but seven years after his last goal for the club, he headed home the winner to give Jose Mourinho's side all three points against Brighton on Sunday.

And 31-year-old was elated to get the goal and the points.

“It was a bit relief, a lot of happiness,” he said.

“It’s an incredible feeling personally, and you just wish the fans were here to celebrate.

"If that was the case, then… I can’t imagine that feeling.
