Son Heung-min scores 100th goal for Tottenham, Kim Ha-seong moves to MLB Updated: 2021-01-04 15:30:28 KST

Time now for 'This Week in Sports' and joining us in the studio is our sports editor Paul Neat.
Paul, how better to kick off the new year than by Super Sonny's 100th goal for Tottenham Hotspur? Of course, one he made with the help of Harry Kane.

Yes, indeed. It was an extra special weekend for Son Heung-minwho, as you say, reached 100 goals for Tottenham Hotspur.
Son reached his Spurs century on Saturdayadding the second goal in a 3-0 win at home to Leeds United.
Once again combining with Harry Kane to net his 12th in the Premier League this season.
Kane's assist was the 13th time the pair have combined this term, equaling the English top-flight record for goal combinations set by Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton for Blackburn Rovers in 1995.

Overall, he has played 253 times for Tottenham which gives him a ratio of 0.4 goals per game.
That's actually slightly better than Jermain Defoe who is an out-and-out striker.
Son is the 18th player to join Tottenham's 100 Club and is now just two goals away from a season best.

Congratulations to him. To baseball nowlast year we had five South Korean stars in Major League Baseball, three made it to the postseason and one even made it to the World Series. But from 2021, MLB will have another Korean star?

Yes, it will. That's because South Korean all-star infielder Kim Ha-seong has secured a move to MLBsigning for the San Diego Padres.
The Padres officially announced on Thursday that Kim had signed a four-year deal.
Kim will earn a guaranteed 28 million U.S. dollars over four years and can make up to 4 million more in performance-based incentives. There's also a mutual option for a fifth season.
The 25-year-old spent the past seven seasons with the Kiwoom Heroes and was posted to MLB clubs on December 2nd.
The deadline for him to find a move was 5 PM Eastern Time on Friday.
Kiwoom Heroes received a 5-and-a-half million U.S. Dollar transfer fee.

To domestic volleyball,
we had some concerning news over the weekend which brought the V-League season to a halt. What can you tell us about that?

Yes, worryingly a potential COVID-19 outbreak has led to the postponement of the KOVO volleyball league.
Four V-League matches scheduled for Saturday and Sunday were canceled.
This was because a broadcast official, who covered the men's OK Financial Group and KB Insurance men's match at Sangnoksu Gymnasium in Ansan on December 26th, was confirmed to have contracted COVID-19.

Officials suspended the V-League according to its COVID-19 manual and began testing on around 1,500 people from both the men and women's leagues including players from 13 teams, coaching staff, club officials, and referees.
Fortunately, there were no additional confirmed cases.
Further discussions took place on Monday whether to resume or not.
More on that when we have it.

Thank-you for that, Paul. We shall see you next week.
