Tottenham have confirmed they have signed Timo Werner on another one-year loan deal.

The original January loan deal for the Red Bull Leipzig striker had an option to buy for around £15m, although the new deal is for £8.5m.

Ange Postecoglou is delighted with the contribution of Werner, 28, and the deal represents good business for Tottenham, who are looking to make a good impression in the market.

The German striker joined Postecoglou’s side in January and scored two goals in 13 appearances on his return to the Premier League.

Werner was keen to stay at the club and rediscover his form after struggling in recent years.

He endured a difficult time during his two years at Stamford Bridge, failing to show the form that earned him a £53million move to the Blues.

Werner returned to RB Leipzig in 2022, where he scored 11 goals in 35 Bundesliga games before joining Tottenham last winter.

His experience and versatility are an advantage for Tottenham, as he can operate on both wings as well as being a striker.

Speaking about the possibility of Werner staying, Postecoglou said earlier this month: “We signed Timo on loan until the end of the season and he is part of that strategy to see what we have to do in the summer and if we can do it.” .

‘Will there be other gaps? Where does Timo fit into that strategy? So we have a plan in place, and that was independent. I think it’s been very good for us.

‘We were missing large areas. “His arrival was a big help to us and I think he’s had an impact, but in my opinion, to make those definitive decisions, I still need some clarity on what we have here first.”
