Tottenham would sell Son 'in a heartbeat' this summer after confirmed news - pundit
Frank McAvennie insists Tottenham would sell Heung-Min Son in a “heartbeat” despite him signing a new deal.
The former West Ham hitman, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claims the attacker could even be sold this summer.
Tottenham announced last week (23 July) that the winger had penned a new four-year deal with the club.
Football Insider first revealed on 17th July the 29-year-old had agreed a new deal with the north London club.
His previous deal was set to expire in the summer of 2023 and Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich were keeping tabs on Son’s situation.
McAvennie insists this new deal changes nothing as Spurs would still sell Son this summer if the right offer comes in.

“He’s not committed to the club at all,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“I don’t think the club are committed to him, they are protecting themselves.
“They would sell him tomorrow, in a heartbeat, there’s no doubt in my mind. If Kane goes he’ll be off.
“If it all goes pear-shaped at Spurs, or even more pear-shaped I should say, He’ll be off.
“It means nothing. If a big club comes knocking, he’s off. It was a sensible move by all parties because frankly, Spurs could do without the drama.
“He could easily leave in my eyes.”
Son played a huge role in Tottenham’s 2020-21 season, scoring 17 goals in the Premier League.
He also chipped in with 10 assists during an underwhelming campaign from the north London club.
