Tottenham Hotspur reportedly make a decision over how to handle the future of RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly reached a decision over how to handle the situation with Timo Werner.

During the January transfer window, Spurs successfully negotiated a loan deal for the RB Leipzig attacker, who was eager to earn regular football during the second half of the campaign in a bid to make Germany's Euro 2024 squad.

A thigh injury sustained during the back end of the season means that the former Chelsea man will miss out on representing his country.

However, he ended his time with Spurs having contributed two goals and three assists from his 13 appearances in the Premier League, 10 of which came from the starting lineup.

Possessing the option of turning the loan switch into a permanent move, Spurs have been left with a decision to make over what to do with the 28-year-old.

Spurs decide to keep Werner

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, there is every chance that Werner will be remaining at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the 2024-25 campaign.

Nevertheless, it is alleged that a season-long loan move is more likely than a permanent deal being activated, with the two clubs having seemingly negotiated a compromise.

Romano adds that there will be no change to the finances involved for the first loan spell, with both teams feeling that they are gaining value for money.

Werner holds a contract at RB Leipzig for another two years and his German employers seemingly hold the opinion that they are under no pressure to restrict themselves to permanent bids.

Werner could prove to be important signing

Having contributed just one assist during his final six appearances, Spurs fans may not necessarily be too enthused about another season with Werner in the squad.

That said, his five goal contributions came in separate matches and he would only complete the 90 minutes on three occasions.

Furthermore, Ange Postecoglou faces upheaval in the attacking ranks with Richarlison and Bryan Gil each being tipped to leave, while Alejo Veliz will go back out on loan.

Participating with the Europa League will stretch the North Londoners' squad, with Werner's versatility theoretically a key asset to possess in order to manage so many matches.
