“It is vitally important that they get Son tied down to a new deal,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“We talk about the managerial appointment being appointment well Son staying is almost as important.
“If Harry Kane leaves, you start to wonder what other players might want to leave. If the likes of Son and Lloris started making noises about wanting to leave on the back of Harry Kane moving to say Manchester City then it would be a huge problem for Spurs.
“To hear Son is near to signing a new deal is massive for Tottenham. It is the best news that has come out of the club in the last six months.”
