Your morning Tottenham digest on Friday, September 22.

Daniel Levy stance

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has opened up on a wide range of subjects in a big interview with Bloomberg. It comes just days after he also spoke at a fans' forum event as well as attending the Fan Advisory Board meeting at the club too.

Given the swirling speculation around him and his position as well as the ownership of the club, Levy was asked about the role he is playing and potentially selling his stake. "I've got no real interest to leave Tottenham, but I have a duty to consider anything that anyone may want to propose," he responded.

"It’s not about me, it’s about what’s right for the club. We run this 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."

He was influential alongside Postecoglou and Levy in overhauling the squad for a new style of football this season compared to the one he had hired for under Antonio Conte. It comes at a time whereby new chief football officer Scott Munn officially started.

Munn is expected to look at bringing in a new technical director swiftly in order to act as a key figure between himself and Postecoglou. With a freshly revamped and expanded scouting and data network at the club, Gabbanini will now not be part of the group moving forward in north London but is admired by many across the continent.

Son Heung-Min decision

Tottenham have the option to extend Son Heung-Min's contract until 2026, reports suggest, as Levy attempts to ensure that the current club captain does not follow the exit path led by Harry Kane this summer. Son's current deal runs until 2025 but The Telegraph write that there is an option to trigger an extra year.

There is currently no immediate threat for Spurs or Son despite links to him moving to Saudi Arabia earlier this summer. The option will be used but it is not close to being triggered.

Spurs learnt their lesson the hard way after selling Kane to Bayern Munich with his deal being run down and backing Levy into a corner. Kane wouldn't extend his commitment

to the club and thus left Levy backed into a corner eventually.
