Tottenham Hotspur have signed Germany striker Timo Werner on loan from RB Leipzig until the end of the season.

Werner’s move includes an option for a permanent deal in the summer.

He bolsters Tottenham’s forward options with Son Heung-min away with South Korea for the Asian Cup and James Maddison sidelined with injury.

The 27-year-old has Premier League experience with Chelsea after joining the Blues in a £45m move from Bundesliga club Leipzig in 2020.

The German scored 23 goals in 89 appearances for Chelsea, winning the Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup, before returning to Leipzig in 2022.

He has scored two goals in 14 appearances this season but missed Saturday’s friendly with St Gallen because transfer talks were taking place with Tottenham.

Werner has 57 Germany caps but last played for his country in a friendly defeat by Belgium in March 2023.

His move is subject to international clearance but Werner could be available when Spurs play at Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday, 14 January (16:30 GMT).

Tottenham are fifth in the top flight, six points behind leaders Liverpool.
