The Korean, left in tears on the pitch after the Wembley defeat by City, had been widely expected to leave this summer after yet another trophyless season, along with strike partner Harry Kane.
Bayern Munich were linked with a move for Son if a deal with Spurs could not be finalised, and Real Madrid have also watched his progress.
Son is having one of his best seasons yet at Tottenham, with 23 goals and 10 assists in 49 appearances so far, with his partnership with Kane one of the deadliest in the Premier League.
Kane’s future is more uncertain, with the England striker this week expressing his disappointment at yet another fruitless season at the north London club.
Kane said after being named Premier League Player of the Year at the London Football Awards: “Individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements.
“When I look back at the end of my career, I will go over it and take in a little bit more. The goal right now as a player is to win team trophies.
“As much as this [award] is great, I want to be winning the biggest prizes that there is to offer as a team and we are not quite doing that.
