The reason Timo Werner will not block Mikey Moore's path at Tottenham after Postecoglou decision

It has been a busy few days at Tottenham Hotspur with their first transfer deal of the summer window, a new contract for one player and plenty of plans put into place.

On Tuesday evening Spurs sealed a deal to extend Timo Werner's loan stay at the club for another season with an option to purchase the Champions League-winning German from RB Leipzig for £8.5million in 2025. The 28-year-old currently has a hamstring injury but is expected to be fit for pre-season and Postecoglou enjoyed working with the former Chelsea man and saw him as an effective part of the squad for next season if a deal could be done.

The return of the winger, who managed six goal involvements in 12 Premier League matches before that injury, has provoked some divided opinions among the Tottenham fanbase. Some believe he is too unreliable in front of goal while others are concerned that his presence will block the path to Ange Postecoglou's team for 16-year-old academy winger Mikey Moore, currently on England duty at the European U17 Championships.

Our Spurs correspondents Alasdair Gold and Rob Guest discuss that suggestion, as well as how far Moore still has to go in his development and Werner's move in the latest episode of their podcast Gold & Guest Talk Tottenham.

The duo also speak about the success of the club's U21s this week with their double trophy haul, the new five-year deal for goalkeeper Brandon Austin as well as young Tottenham striker Troy Parrott's fine form in the Eredivisie as well as the latest goings on with Lucas Bergvall and Luka Vuskovic, who are set to arrive at the club this summer and next summer respectively.
