Wimmer set for Stoke City exit

The Mail Online understand that Stoke City are considering selling defender Kevin Wimmer just twelve months after signing him for £18m.

The twenty-five-year-old centre-back featured regularly during the first half of the season but was sidelined following the arrival of Paul Lambert, who had concerns over his fitness.

The Austria international is now set to be moved on for a fraction of the fee the Potters paid Tottenham Hotspur to secure his services last summer, with Hannover 96 leading the race to secure his services.

In total, Wimmer played nineteen times for Stoke in all competitions while he racked up thirty-one appearances in one-and-a-half years with Spurs.

Internationally, he has been capped eight times for his country with three of those outings coming in their failed 2018 World Cup qualification campaign.

Stoke finished the 2017/18 campaign in nineteenth place in the Premier League, three points from safety.
