Tottenham Hotspur bound Timo Werner is currently in the air with his RB Leipzig team-mates, heading back to Germany, rather than going directly to London.


Spurs have an agreement with Leipzig to sign Werner on a six-month loan deal with a purchase option included.


Werner himself has also come to terms with Tottenham and the switch appears to be just a matter of time, with only the medical and signatures on documents to come.




The striker is not flying to London yet though and is currently in the air heading from Spain back to Germany with his Leipzig team-mates first, according to Sky Deutschland.


Leipzig have been in Spain for a warm-weather training camp and Werner will arrive back in Germany first before he heads to England.



Tottenham will take on Werner’s Leipzig salary in full for the duration of the loan spell.


And the option to buy that Spurs will be able to trigger is set at around €17m to €18m.



Werner had a poor spell in the Premier League with Chelsea, but will hope his time at Tottenham under Ange Postecoglou can be more productive.
