Tottenham captain Son Heung-min has gotten his wish. The flanker has signed a new contract with Tottenham to stay at the club.

Tottenham announced on Monday (June 29): ‘We are delighted to announce that Timo Werner has signed a new contract to rejoin Tottenham from RB Leipzig on loan for the 2024-2025 season. We are delighted to be able to announce this. It also includes an option for a full transfer,’ the club officially announced. It comes after Son Heung-min gave an interview before the end of the season in which he expressed his hope that Werner would stay.

Tottenham brought Werner in on loan in the winter transfer window in January. It included an option for a full transfer at the end of the season. However, Spurs opted to extend the loan for another year instead.

‘Werner has been a regular starter under Enzi Postecoglou. With Son Heung-min on international duty and Dejan Kluczewski out injured, Werner made his debut just five days after joining the club. He went on to make 13 Premier League appearances and one FA Cup appearance. 안전놀이터 He scored two goals and provided three assists before being ruled out for the season with a hamstring injury in early May.

Werner’s current market value is €17 million, according to transfer website TransferMarkt.

That’s not out of Spurs’ reach, but they have plenty of other areas to spend money on, including a center forward, a central midfielder, and a backup center back. Werner is not a priority.

According to sports publication Athletic, Werner isn’t a great player, but he’s needed because he fits so well into Postecoglou’s tactics.

“Werner’s record is not groundbreaking. But he has adapted well to Postecoglou’s system. Werner is fast and direct. He makes life difficult for opposing right-backs. The only problem is that his finishing isn’t as good as his movement.

The Athletic concluded: ‘Werner’s value goes beyond just scoring goals, though. He is popular with the staff and teammates alike. Son Heung-min may be the first choice on the left, but Werner is a useful alternative.

Son Heung-min praised Werner in an interview with the Evening Standard last month.

“I think Werner has done a good job of listening to the manager’s requests. “The way we approach the game, it’s very important that the wingers are wide and in the right positions. Werner and Johnson understand each other and are doing a good job.”

“Werner was a little bit lacking in confidence when he first came to Tottenham, but I can see him playing more confidently and more comfortable now. He missed a few chances, but they will come again. As I always say, he is the winner of the Bundesliga Golden Boot. There are many important games ahead. I expect him to score more goals and provide more assists for the team.”

Son hopes Werner will stay at Tottenham.

“I always want good friends and good teammates. But in football, 슬롯 보증 사이트 there are no guarantees. It’s up to the club to decide. I’m sure Werner will be happy to stay at Tottenham,” he said, adding unspoken pressure.

“As a player, I want to help Werner make a better choice than he has now, and that’s what a teammate does. We’ll see what happens at the end of the season. I hope he stays,” he said bluntly.
