Medical scheduled: Tottenham to make huge profit on flop as deal agreed - Sky
By Harry Sykes
Tottenham defender Kevin Wimmer is poised to undergo a medical at Stoke City on Monday and sign for £15million, according to a report.
Sky Sports claim on their Twitter account that Wimmer, 24, has travelled to Staffordshire to put the finishing touches to the move after a fee was agreed between the two clubs.

The Austria international was not part of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad on Sunday as they drew 1-1 against Burnley at Wembley.
New signing Davinson Sanchez took on the back-up defender role and made his debut as a late substitute for Tottenham.
Signed for £4.3million from Koln in the summer of 2015, Wimmer’s last appearance in a Spurs shirt came as far back as Ferbuary, ironically in a 4-0 victory over Stoke.

Football Insider verdict:
This is another brilliant piece of transfer business from Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. A near-£11million profit on a second-string defender who has showed only glimpses of quality during the last two years is further proof why the club have one of the best negotiators in the business. Tottenham have also been sensible enough to secure an upgrade before offloading Wimmer, with Sanchez arriving in time to make his debut yesterday.
