With the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier and the incoming Davinson Sanchez ahead of Kevin Wimmer in the pecking order, it’s little surprise that the Austrian has left Tottenham.

And after numerous teams were reported to be chasing the 24-year-old defender, Stoke City have won the race and they announced the signing of Wimmer on a five-year deal on the club’s website.

Speaking about the arrival of Wimmer, Stoke boss Mark Hughes said:

“Kevin is an undoubted talent and he will significantly add to the quality of the group of players that I already have at my disposal.

“We put a real emphasis on trying to enhance the defensive areas of the squad this summer and we feel that we have been able to do that.”

Wimmer is the third defender to walk through the doors of the bet365 Stadium this summer after Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma and Bruno Martins Indi, becoming their seventh arrival of a productive market.
