According to SkySources, Stoke City have joined the race to sign 24 year Austrian international Kevin Wimmer from Spurs Summer.

The Spurs defender recently found himself to be out-of-favour at the club, after starting just 5 Premier League games for Tottenham last season.

The defender has been linked with a move away from North-London all Summer, with the player himself even expressing his desire to leave in early July when he told SkySports Austria that it would be ‘beautiful’ to play regular Premier League football elsewhere.

Last week, West Brom were rumoured to be launching an opening bid for the 24 year old, but now SkySources have revealed that Tony Pulis’ pursuit of Wimmer may be rivaled by Mark Hughes’ Stoke City.

The centre-back, who signed for Spurs for £4.3 million from Cologne in 2015, reportedly won’t be sold for anything less than the £20 million price-tag Spurs have placed on the Austrian.

West Brom remain firm favourites to sign the want-away defender this Summer, with a move likely to happen before the deadline at the end of the month now that Spurs have confirmed the capture of 21 year Davinson Sanchez from Ajax on a 6 year deal.
