Spurs allow Austrian centre back to leave which could open door for Juan Foyth to complete switch from Estudiantes
Tottenham Hotspur have allowed defender Kevin Wimmer to complete a move to Stoke City in a deal worth £18 million this morning.
The Austrian centre back has departed Spurs after only two seasons with the north London club.
Stoke boss Mark Hughes expressed his delight at securing the signing of the former FC Koln ace.
He said: “Kevin is an undoubted talent. He will significantly add to the quality of the group of players that I already have.

“We have put a real emphasis on trying to enhance the defensive areas of the squad this summer. We feel that we have been able to do that.”
In total, Wimmer made 31 appearances for Tottenham and only signed a new five-year contract last summer.
