Agent: Tottenham senior player could quit despite new deal, there is huge interest

By Harry Sykes

Kevin Wimmer could quit Tottenham next year if his situation at the club remains unchanged, according to his agent.

The Austria international has been only a fringe player at White Hart Lane this season despite signing a new contract in July.

Wimmer is tied to Spurs until 2021 but his agent Juergen Werner has raised the possibility of a move if he continues to be frozen out of the team.

Werner revealed that Wimmer has no plans to leave in January as things stand despite plenty of interest in the player but a transfer could be on the cards at the end of the season.

“Spurs want to keep him,” Werner told German publication Spox. “But if a good offer comes, they too will have to deal with it. The plan is nothing, but there are a lot of requests.”

Wimmer’s representative had a different perspective to the main summer window.

“If nothing changes until summer, we have to look,” Werner told Spox.

Wimmer joined Spurs from Cologne in the summer of 2015 and, after being forced to wait for his chance due to the Toby Alderweireld-Jan Vertonghen partnership, impressed during a run in the side in the second half of last season.

But the 24-year-old has struggled for game time this season and made just five appearances in all competitions despite Alderweireld missing two months with a knee problem.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has preferred Eric Dier as Vertonghen’s partner rather than playing two left footers in the heart of the defence.

In other Tottenham transfer news, Pochettino has given the green light for three players to quit Spurs in the January window.
