Meanwhile, this development is expected to delight Jose Mourinho as his team will be preparing for Premier League resumption soon.
The English topflight has been on hold since mid-March when deadly coronavirus hit hard in top European countries.
However, they are already easing out of their total lockdown procedure to allow economic activities to return but a high level of social distancing would be observed.
League organisers have also announced that the remainder of the 2019-20 season would be played behind closed doors - but are planning to put the games on TV for the fans to watch.
It would be recalled that Son has not been available for Tottenham since February after suffering a major injury.
His return along with Harry Kane and a few others might boost the north London club's chances of qualifying for the Champions League next term.
They have already been bundled out of the championship this season and it might help them focus on finishing top four.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min is currently serving a three-week mandatory military program in South Korea.
The 27-year-old attacker who scored a sumptuous solo goal on one of the Premier League matches this season has now been spotted with a rifle and wearing bulletproof gear.
According to The Mirror, the Spurs star is presently based at Seogwipo on the island of Jeju - to the south coast of the South Korean mainland.
