Tottenham Hotspur has officially announced the exciting loan signing of German forward Timo Werner from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig. The 27-year-old striker joins Spurs until the end of the season, securing the coveted number 16 jersey.
In an official statement, the English club expressed their delight, stating, “We are delighted to announce the signing of Timo Werner on loan from RB Leipzig, subject to international clearance.

Expressing his excitement about joining Tottenham, Werner said in an exclusive interview with SPURSPLAY, “First of all, I’m very happy to be here. I’ve joined a very, very big club. We have often played against each other already – it doesn’t matter if I was playing for Chelsea or Leipzig, they were always big, big games to play against Spurs – and now I’m happy to be part of the team at the Club, and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Werner cited several factors that attracted him to Tottenham, including a positive conversation with the manager, the team’s tactics and playing style, the iconic stadium, and the presence of talented players. He believes it’s a perfect fit and is eager to contribute to the success of the team.
