Tottenham have completed the £4.3million signing of Cologne defender Kevin Wimmer and the player will officially join the club in June.

Wimmer confirmed the move after his side’s draw with Wolfsburg on Saturday and told the German media: ‘I go to Tottenham, it is the next step in my development.

‘I don’t mind whether they make the Europa League. I go to Tottenham, to go to the next level.’

Mauricio Pochettino is expected to part company with Younes Kaboul and Vlad Chiriches as he looks to strengthen his options at the heart of the Tottenham defence, with another centre-half said to be on his shopping list.

Etienne Capoue, Benjamin Stambouli, Paulinho, Mousa Dembele, Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor are all rumoured to be potentially on their way out of White Hart Lane. It’s frankly embarrassing that our recruitment policy has seen us waste millions of pounds.

Hopefully the appointment of Paul Mitchell can restore some respect to our transfer dealings.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Another catastrophic transfer market then, Dembele, Stambouli, Chiriches, Paulinho.. selling Dembele is doing another Sigurdsson, Dembele will be world class elsewhere.. selling Stambouli/Paulinho who have improved a lot and will be quality elsewhere as well.. Chiriches is the most underrated player in the squad by a country mile, a player with world class potential, Fazio has been our real weakness at the back although with his strength and aerial ability it's tempting to keep hold of him to develop on the ball over a season or 2.. What about Yedlin, Davies, Holtby, (Kaboul, Capoue, Soldado, Adebayor), these are the players who should go. It doesn't matter if they've just arrived, they are the weaker players, they should be transferred for better quality obviously, it's so simple and easy, how do they manage to get transfers wrong every season?
