Tottenham Hotspur host fellow London side Brentford in the Premier League on Wednesday evening. 

The Lilywhites were knocked out of the FA Cup at the fourth round stage on Friday, with Ange Postecoglou’s side succumbing to a 1-0 defeat against holders Manchester City.

The Australian will be desperate to see his side return to winning ways against the Bees, with Tottenham now almost certain to extend their trophy-less spell for another year after exiting the FA Cup.

In the meantime, it has emerged that Tottenham have made a huge decision on the future of loanee Timo Werner, just weeks after the German joined the club.

As per Football Insider, the North London outfit have no intention of making the forward’s move a permanent one this summer.

Werner is likely to return to Leipzig this summer

Werner, 27, joined the Lilywhites on loan from German side RB Leipzig earlier this month, in a deal that included an option-to-buy clause.

It had previously been suggested that the Premier League side would activate the clause, but the report instead suggests that Tottenham will allow Werner to return to his parent club.

The former Chelsea man made an instant impact at Tottenham, providing an assist on his debut for the club as Spurs drew 2-2 against Manchester United in the Premier League.

He has since played the entirety of Spurs’ defeat to City on Friday, but the Germany international could struggle to keep his starting spot once club captain Son Heung-Min returns from international duty with South Korea next month.

Spurs are said to be paying Werner’s entire salary during his loan spell in London, and the Premier League side have the option to sign the player permanently for a fee of just £15 million.
