Whilst fans are eagerly await news of any new signing by the club, they have to be content (for now) of official news that Son and Lamela have signed new contracts, keeping them at club to 2023 and 2022 respectively.

Spurs announced earlier on Friday that Son Heung-min had committed his long-term future to the club, and Lamela has now followed suit by signing a deal which will last until 2022.

Son Heung-min has committed his long-term future by signing a new five-year contract with the club.

The 26-year-old has put pen to paper on a deal which will keep him at the club until 2023, extending his stay in North London to eight years. Son joined Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 and has since gone on to score 47 goals in 140 appearances for the club, becoming the leading Asian scorer in Premier League history in the process.

The South Korean enjoyed his best season for the club last season in terms of contribution to goals, scoring 18 and assisting 11 more throughout the campaign.

Erik Lamela, 26, joined the North London outfit back in 2013 and since his arrival, the Argentine has scored 23 goals in 154 appearances in all competitions. Having missed a year of action with a hip injury, the playmaker made a return to first-team action in November 2017 and featured on 33 occasions during the 2017/18 campaign.

 

Welcome news getting these two on long-term contracts. Hopefully, we see some marquee signing joining this summer to help take the club to the next level.
