£18m Wimmer heads out on loan
FOOTBALL: Kevin Wimmer has left relegated Stoke to join Bundesliga club Hannover on a season-long loan deal.
The 25-year-old Austrian centre-back signed for the Potters from Tottenham for £18m in August 2017 but made only 19 appearances in all competitions as Stoke headed out of the Premier League.
A statement from Stoke said the loan agreement “carries the potential for the deal to be made permanent”.
Wimmer had not featured for the Potters since their 3-0 Premier League defeat at Manchester United in January and he last played for all 90 minutes in the FA Cup defeat to Coventry in the same month.
