Tottenham have confirmed that they have signed Timo Werner to another year-long loan deal.

The original loan agreement from January for the Red Bull Leipzig striker had an option to buy for around £15m, though the new deal is believed to be just £8.5m.

Ange Postecoglou has been delighted with the 28-year old Werner's contribution and the deal represents good business for Tottenham as they look to make an early impression in the market.

The German forward 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 having struggled in recent years.

He endured a difficult time during his two-year spell at Stamford Bridge, failing to display the form that earned him a £53m move to the Blues.

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

His experience and versatility is a bonus for Tottenham as he is able to operate on both flanks as well as a striker.

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

'Are there going to be other gaps and where does Timo fit in with that strategy? So we have a plan in place, and that was irrespective. I think he's been very good for us.

'We were short in wide areas. Him coming in was very helpful for us and I think he's made an impact but in my mind to make those definitive decisions, I still need some clarity about what we've got here first.'
