Fabrizio Romano confirmed today that Spurs will be extending the loan of Timo Werner for another season.

He also confirmed that the loan will have the same clauses as the last one: a loan with no obligation clause and a buy option of around £15m. Other media outlets are reporting that the buy option is approximately £10m.

The German forward had a productive season, registering 2 goals and 3 assists in 13 Premier League games, with 10 of those appearances being starts, according to SofaScore.

This news has cause mixed emotion amongst the Spurs fanbase.

Spurs to extend forward's loan for another year

Some see it as risk-free due to there being no permanent transfer fee involved, and see him as a useful squad player for Spurs who will play at minimum 5 more games than they did this past season.

But others have doubts - worrying that this will be Spurs' only signing in that position and ultimately leaving Spurs without an improvement in one of the positions in the XI that needed an upgrade.

Further concern comes from the fact that Fabrizio Romano has said that Spurs will be covering his £165k salary in full.

This has led to concerns that Spurs will be either 1) paying those sorts of wages on a substitute player, or 2) as touched on before, if he is starting - Spurs not upgrade in a position of need.
