It is being reported this evening that Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Cologne central defender Kevin Wimmer.

The Sunday People claim that Wimmer will become a Spurs player on June 1 in a £4.25millon deal after terms were agreed last week.

The 23-year-old Austrian international has been identified to try and improve our central defensive ranks.  Federico Fazio has failed to set the world alight since joining the club, while Vlad Chiriches has shown many times that he can be a liability – leaving only Vertonghen and Dier as capable defenders.

The report claims that Franco Baldini has been tasked with clearing out a raft of players which he helped to recruit to the club – how he still has a job is remarkable in my opinion.   Among those rumoured to be heading for the exists at N17 are Emmanuel Adebator, Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela,  Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Benjamin Stambouli, Vlad Chiriches, Younes Kaboul and Federico Fazio.

Whoever is left, turn off the lights.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Hey Admin ! Let's be real. Fazio is going nowhere. Erik Lamela and I suspect Soldado will stay. I hope and hope (no praying for me !) that Townsend is away too. I suspect will Lennon, Carroll and Holtby will join them.

    Welcome Mr Wimmer let's hope he can do the business !!

    ps Am I just paranoid or has Eric Dier become a complete and utter liability. Lastly why wasn't Yedlin on the bench ?

  2. whata bloody nightmare why this man baldini was employed is beyond me don't agree with stamboli or paulinho leaving deserve a another season if anything maybe pooch should start to worry

  3. The only people that ought to be leaving spurs are daniel levy and poch, by Chelsea standards the should both be fired, but by spurs standard another painful pat in the ack would be expected; sad… any how

    • So you wan't Poch out do you well what would the implications be if he was replaced after one season
      Firstly who would come in ?and Secondly it would put us in a position
      where we would have to start all over again
      a new Manager new tactics the players would have to get used to it would take time
      and we could still end up Finishing the season the way we have finished this one
      which is not a recipe for success

  4. I would like to see more of Stambouli,did'nt get enough of a chance in the team,but please let's get rid of Ade(with family issues as well)Fazio is to slow for the pace of this league,as well as Soldado.Townsend is to predictable,and defenders read him easily,and the fact that he never back-tracks to help at the back when he loses the ball does'nt help his cause either.In my opinion Nabil should really pull-up his socks in the heart of midfield,where he has failed really more times than i can count.We really need a genuine playmaker in midfield to take the pressure of our defenders.So i really hope that they get real quality this time around instead of quantity which got us nowhere in the end.
