Tottenham Hotspur confirms Timo Werner loan extension

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Timo Werner will stay with the club on loan from RB Leipzig for the 2024-25 season.

During the January transfer window, the 28-year-old joined Tottenham on an initial loan agreement before becoming a first-team regular under manager Ange Postecoglou in the second half of the season.

The former Chelsea forward started 11 of Spurs’ 14 Premier League and FA Cup games, scoring twice and assisting three times.

Werner was out of favour at Leipzig, so he left the Bundesliga to join Spurs in pursuit of consistent playing time and a better chance of representing Germany at Euro 2024.

Despite his great influence in North London, Werner was just left out of Julian Nagelsmann’s preliminary team for this summer’s tournament in his home country.

Nonetheless, Werner has loved his limited time at Tottenham and stated last month that he would be willing to extend his stay.

Werner is looking forward to another “incredible season” at Spurs. Postecoglou considers Werner a “important signing” and says a decision on his future will be made “at the appropriate time”.

Just over a week after Tottenham’s final Premier League game of the season, the club has confirmed that Werner has returned on loan from Leipzig, with the option to make the move permanent.

According to multiple sources, including one from BBC Sport, Tottenham’s initial loan arrangement included a buyout clause worth approximately £15 million.

However, it is now understood that Werner’s new loan deal contains a new buy option for £8.5 million, which can be exercised in the summer of 2025.

Following Tottenham’s confirmation of the agreement, Werner took to Instagram to share his excitement, writing: “Happy to be at Spurs next year! Looking forward to seeing you all at the stadium for a wonderful season.”

In a separate post on Spurs’ official account, Werner wrote: “I see how amazing the club is, how excellent we are as a team, and my position in the team. The players were all quite kind, which made things easier for me. I feel extremely good here. “I really like it.”

Werner is Tottenham’s second official acquisition for the 2024-25 season, following Swedish star Lucas Bergvall’s move from Djurgardens in February.
