Here is your morning summary of Tottenham on Saturday December 11.
Son backed for Manchester United switch
Former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung has suggested Tottenham’s Son Heung-Min would be a hit for the Red Devils if he moves to Old Trafford.
Speaking to Goal, he said: “He’s already proven himself in the Premier League and I think he’s good enough to do very well at United.
“The only minor issue would be that he might not get his favorite No.7 shirt because Ronaldo is already there!
“But if I had to choose anyone other than Son, I would say either Hwang Hee-chan from Wolves or Lee Kang-in from Mallorca, both of whom have good potential as players.”
