Agbonlahor adamant Tottenham superstar is 'not leaving' after Son reveal
There is no chance Tottenham would let Heung-min Son leave even if he wanted to, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England forward claimed Spurs would finish down in 13th if both Son and Harry Kane left this summer.
Football Insider learned on 2 July Son has handed new manager Nuno Espirito Santo a massive boost by indicating he is looking forward to playing under him next term.
He is out of contract in 2023 and has attracted interest from elite clubs.
Spurs have offered Son a new five-year deal worth more than £200,000-a-week and he was close to putting pen to paper before Christmas.
Meanwhile, the future of star striker Kane is up in the air.

Football Insider exclusively revealed on 9 April he had told friends he wanted to quit the club this summer.
However, managing director of football Fabio Paratici told Sky Sport on July 4 he wants to keep the England captain at the club next season.
“Son won’t be going anywhere,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“Spurs know without Son and Kane they could finish down in 12th or 13th. They’re a poor side without them.
“That’s why they don’t want to let their talismans go in Kane and Son. For sure, 100 per cent, Son, he’s not leaving.”
Son, 29, scored 22 times and provided 17 assists in 51 games across all competitions last term.
The South Korea captain has scored 107 goals and contributed 64 assists in 280 appearances all competitions for Tottenham.
