Timo Werner is staying a Red Bull! Shortly before the match against Eintracht Frankfurt, the club announced that Werner had signed a contract until 2023.
The 23-year-old has been with the club since 2016, scoring 62 goals in 116 games whilst also providing 28 assists.
Timo has been our top goalscorer in the league for the past three seasons (2016/17: 21 goals | 2017/18: 14 goals | 2018/19: 16 goals).
Phenomenal, Timo! We will continue to work together as partners!
RBL- Director of Football OLIVER MINTZLAFF:
We had plenty of intense conversations over a long period of time and we really worked hard to try and meet each other’s demands. We’re happy now to have the clarity we’ve been looking for and we’re excited to have Timo be an important part of the squad for many years to come.”
RBL- Sporting Director MARKUS KRÖSCHE:
“Of course we’re incredibly happy that Timo has decided to extend his deal with us and that he will continue to play for our great club.
It’s a very positive sign for us and it also emphasises our goal of tying our key players down long term and permanently establishing ourselves in the Bundesliga. Of course, it was a big decision for him to make and so we gave him all the time he needed."
“I’m happy to have signed a new deal with RB Leipzig. Of course, this process has been going on for a very long time, but I wanted to be completely sure that it was the right decision for me to take the next steps in my career with this club.
And for the right decisions you just need a little longer. Now I can fully concentrate on playing with our team and on having as successful a season as possible."
