Tottenham Defender Linked With Exit Rumours Despite Extending His Contract This Season

Tottenham defender Kevin Wimmer signed a new contract with the club only back in July. However, transfer rumours have now linked him with a move away from the club – at least on a loan deal – after falling down the pecking order at Spurs. Wimmer has been unable to get regular first-team football even in the absence of players like Toby Alderweireld for extended parts of the campaign. He has made only two Premier League appearances this season prior to tonight’s game against Watford, as manager Mauricio Pochettino preferred using midfielder Eric Dier in the centre back position when Alderweireld was injured.

It is one of the big disappointments for Wimmer, who came to the club for around €7 million from German outfit FC Cologne in the summer of 2015. It appears that he may be set for a return to Germany with his former club ready to take him on a loan deal as reported by German source GGFN

It is also to be noted that German newspaper Kicker earlier this week reported that Koln wanted to re-sign the Spurs defender, as they’ve completed a deal to let defender Mergim Mavraj join Hamburg in January.

At just 24 years of age, everything seemed to be positive for Wimmer when he signed a fresh contract in the summer to extend his Spurs stay until the summer of 2021. He has been one of the several players to extend their contracts this season.

Spurs offered the player this new deal after witnessing him perform exceptionally well in the second half of last season. He was seen as the alternative once Jan Vertonghen or Alderweireld were out with injuries or suspension. His young age also made him a likely candidate to take over from these two players – at the peak of their careers – in the next couple of years. Yet, they all have a come crashing down in the first half of the campaign, as Wimmer struggled to even get a look in.

Tottenham may be prepared to let the player leave on a loan deal, but it appears that fans are disapproving the decision quite significantly. It was not long ago that Spurs supporters were heavily critical of BBC Match of The Day for playing little significance to the performance of players like Wimmer and Harry Winks.

Wimmer does not appear to be the only 24-year-old to be leaving the club, as midfielder Tom Carroll is also set for departure from White Hart Lane on a permanent move to Swansea.
