Deal Done – Tottenham Agree £15m Fee With Premier League Club To Sell Defender

Published

on

Tottenham Hotspur defender Kevin Wimmer is set to join Premier League rivals Stoke City and is expected to have a medical ahead of a £15million move, according to reports from Sky Sports.

Wimmer is surplus to requirements for manager Mauricio Pochettino following the arrival of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax. The Colombian defender who was signed for a club-record fee would relegate Wimmer further down the pecking order, reducing Kevin’s already scant hopes of first-team action.

The 24-year-old joined Tottenham from Koln in the summer of 2015 but has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular under Pochettino. He had previously attracted interest from West Bromwich Albion this summer. He has made only 15 league appearances for the Lilywhites and is yet to feature this season. Pochettino is willing to let him leave since he has enough options at his disposal.

The Austrian was a part of the team over the weekend when Tottenham dropped points in a 1-1 draw against Burnley. After the game, the defender was spotted saying his goodbye to Spurs teammates adding fuel to the speculation of his transfer.

Mark Hughes has already signed six players in the summer. His defensive options have been bolstered by the signings of Bruno Martins Indi, Kurt Zouma (on loan), and Josh Tymon. It remains to be seen if Wimmer gets first team action at Stoke.

With club captain Ryan Shawcross seeing out his final year of the contract, Hughes sees Wimmer as a long-term option for his defence.

What about Tottenham? Pochettino has already boosted the squad by signing goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga and defender Sanchez. There are reports that the club is going after Argentine teenage centre-back Juan Foyth from Estudiantes.

Although the youngster is not likely to play for the first team this season, Pochettino has his mind set on the long-term future of the back four. With the side having already dropped five points in two home league matches this season, Pochettino is looking at his new signings to lift the mood and get the title charge back on track.

How much will you miss Kevin Wimmer?
