£18m Wim­mer heads out on loan

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

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.
