Wimmer, who said goodbye to his team-mates at Wembley on Sunday, is surplus to requirements at Tottenham following the club-record arrival of fellow defender Davinson Sanchez from Ajax.

The 24-year-old, who previously attracted interest from West Brom this summer, has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular under Pochettino.
