Tottenham to trigger Son Heung-min contract option that will avoid Harry Kane stand-off repeat

Lloris is now effectively third-choice goalkeeper at Tottenham after rejecting a number of offers to move in the summer, but the expectation is he will leave on a free transfer in January.

Despite Tottenham’s impressive start to the season, chairman Daniel Levy has reiterated the fact he remains open to offers for the club in an interview with Bloomberg.

Levy has previously rejected offers from the Far East, Middle East and the US, and said: “I’ve got no real interest to leave Tottenham, but I have a duty to consider anything that anyone may want to propose. It’s not about me, it’s about what’s right for the club.”

On turning down offers to date, he added: “Nothing has been put on our table that we felt has been in the interests of shareholders.

“We run the club as if it’s a public company. If anyone wants to make a serious proposition to the board of Tottenham we would consider it, along with our advisers, and if we felt it was in the interests of the club we would be open to anything.”

Levy also confirmed Telegraph Sport’s story that the clause inserted into the deal to sell Kane that may allow Spurs to re-sign him was a first option agreement that depends on negotiating a fee with Bayern and the England captain wanting to return.

“If Harry, one day, wants to come back to the Premier League and he wants to come to Tottenham, we would have the ability to repurchase him,” said Levy. “Harry was a great servant to the club, an amazing player, someone that came from our academy, but you can’t look into the future. Who knows.”

Scott Munn has officially started work as Tottenham’s chief football officer after his initial start date of July 1 was delayed.
