Glenn Hoddle highlights the unique Son quality he's a big fan of

The former Tottenham Hotspur manager has been discussing the summer signing.

Glenn Hoddle is pleased with the early signs shown by Tottenham signing Heung-Min Son, according to ITV Football.

And the former Tottenham boss says he likes Son's unique ability to keep moving in the final third.

Indeed, while some wide men and no.10s - centre-forwards, too - are far too static, Hoddle is impressed with Son's instinct to get into the box after making a pass.

The pundit also feels Son, who scored twice in Europe on Thursday night, can form an effective partnership with Harry Kane.

Hoddle told ITV Football's Europa League show: "He played out on the wide berth up at Sunderland and did okay. His instinct is to get into the box. If he does play with Kane, they’ll have more for a goal threat.

"What I like about him is, if he plays a ball, he never stops still, he then gets into the box. He’s got that instinct to get into the box."

Son's Tottenham career has certainly started smoothly, although the 23-year-old will need to prove himself on bigger stages with time.

It's interesting how much his fellow wingers have responded, too, to his arrival at White Hart Lane.

Everyone will now have to step their level up due to the increased competition (with Clinton Njie also arriving this summer). Right now, Erik Lamela and Andros Townsend appear to have got the hint - although it's Nacer Chadli who may be most at risk of losing his place based on recent form.
