Here is your Tottenham morning digest on Saturday, December 11.
Son backed for Manchester United switch
Former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung has suggested that Tottenham’s Son Heung-Min would be a success for the Red Devils should he move to Old Trafford.
Speaking with Goal, he said: “He has already proved himself in the Premier League and I believe he’s good enough to do very well at United.
“The only minor issue would be he may not get his favourite No.7 shirt as Ronaldo is already there!
“But if I had to pick someone other than Son, I would say either Hwang Hee-chan from Wolves or Mallorca’s Lee Kang-in, who both have good potential as players.”

Rodgers makes Covid statement
Ahead of Spurs’ clash with Leicester next week, Foxes’ boss Brendan Rodgers has highlighted his side’s commitment to the game being played.
Tottenham have already had two matches postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak in north London but the Northern-Irishman is keen to avoid a similar fate, with a number of Leicester players having also tested positive for the virus.
He said: “I want the players to play. We won’t find excuses unless we get to an absolutely critical stage. We want to play football games. We will recover, and look to get back out there on Sunday.”
