Rumour Mill: Wimmer Deal Agreed?

According to SkySources, Spurs defender Kevin Wimmer is to have a medical at Stoke City today ahead of a £15 million move to the Britannia Stadium.

The Austrian defender has been linked with various clubs such as Crystal Palace and West Brom over the last few days after having been expected to leave Spurs for most of Summer.

Despite the 24 year old’s eagerness to find a new club offering regular game-time, the £20 million price-tag placed on the centre-back by Spurs was reportedly deterring potential interest.

Additionally, Spurs had already sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City and were somewhat lacking in defensive depth, which meant the club were unlikely sell until securing replacements.

However now that Tottenham have secured the signing of 21 year old Colombian Davinson Sanchez and that Spurs appear to be tying up a deal for 19 year old Argentine Juan Foyth, Wimmer is free to move on to a new club.

According to SkySources, a move to Stoke City is on the cards, with the Austrian international undergoing a medical at the West Midlands side.

A fee of £15 million is rumoured to have been agreed between the two clubs and Wimmer is likely to be announced at Mark Hughes’ 7th signing of the Summer as early as tomorrow.

Do you think £15 million is a good deal for Spurs?

  1. Very disappointed with our result against Burnley. Expected a relatively comfortable win. We have to improve a lot and very soon before we fall too far behind the others.
