Verbal agreement between Werner & @SpursOfficial is done as revealed. Werner wants to join Spurs and Postecoglou to keep his chances alive for the EUROs.

Werner, who has been battling injuries this season, is among the established players caught up in a club that is transitioning generations. A six-month loan could benefit both parties, but only if Werner is healthy, confident, and in-form. If any of those three components are missing from Werner’s game, the arrangement likely will not pan out.
