RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner said he'll "definitely" stay with the German club next season. 

Werner has alerted plenty of top teams across Europe with his performances for club and country over the past two seasons. 

The 22-year-old scored 21 goals from 31 Bundesliga appearances last season and has 10 in 24 so far this term.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are just a few of the teams linked with a move for the Germany international. 

But, speaking to Sky after RB Leipzig drew Stuttgart 0-0 on Sunday, Werner committed his future to his current side, at least for the short term. 

Werner was asked if he'd stay at Leipzig until the end of his contract in 2020 and he replied: "Next year, definitely."

Earlier in the week, Werner indicated he'd like to play in the Premier League at some stage in his career. 

“Playing in the Premier League is a dream for me," he told FourFourTwo.  

"I would like to play for two or three clubs, and Manchester United are one of those clubs. But probably not in the next few years – later, when my English is a little bit better! I’m very comfortable at RB Leipzig, though."
