In a development that will have surprised precisely no one, Cologne defender Kevin Wimmer today confirmed to the German media that he is on his way to Spurs.

The 22-year old centre-back is the first confirmed signing of the summer and it bodes well for future purchases. Over the years the club have often taken a long time to identify and secure targets, meaning that new signings are far from being settled in once the season starts.

Far better to get all transfers done early and give Mauricio Pochettino and his coaching staff a full pre-season with all of his squad. Hopefully Wimmer will be the first of a few new faces needed to refresh the squad.

There’s not much footage of video Wimmer out there, but this clip of the Austrian international will put you in mind of a certain German who had a pretty successful time at White Hart Lane.



  1. He drives a Volkswagen Beetle
    He’s German
    And he hasn’t played for a lot of clubs that Jurgen has also not played for
    Practically identical, I’d say.
    Except that Jurgen was a world class goalscorer and Kevin isn’t
    But you can’t have everything

  2. God I can only assume a black person wrote this, because it’s so fucking stupid! He is a defender, Klinsmann was a striker nuff said!
    And no, this guy isn’t anything special, he is just another unproven defender with no EPL experience what so ever and will be exposed week-in, week-out. Spurs need to realise that we should be buying from within the EPL.

    Look at all of Spurs players, notice that all the black ones are crap for Spurs! It’s an obvious trend, and its reflected by the recent report of “best and worst players in EPL this season) which shows mostly lazy blacks getting the “worst” spot.

    • Ah, an unpleasant individual who likes to offend. How proud and pleased to see you approaching, they must be in your neighbourhood.

    • You are a disgusting angry human being who obviously hates his own life because he lives in a council flat and can,nt get a bird…even my dog
      has more right to be on this planet than you scumbag.

    • PS you thick piece of crap…he was reffering to the diving stunt in the video you thick moron…good luck with that scumbag.

    • Ledley King crap???? When were you born? Yesterday?? You twat head fool.. Can’t afford to go to matches cos you too busy begging or burgling houses..

  3. I doubt he’s the new Klinsmann. I’d think he has his own qualities, however, that involve physical presence, hard work and discipline in a part of the Spurs side that has needed strengthening.

    • You’re comparing apples with oranges when you replace ‘you’re or you are’ with ‘your’! Doesn’t make sense. . LOL

  4. Guys, if you check out the video attached, you will then see why he has been compared to the great man. … COYS

  6. Klinsmann is german, Wimmer is Austrian. Klinsmann is a striker, Wimmer is a defender. Sorry but are you seeing something that im not, or else WTF ?????????

  7. It was all about the dive, nothing to do with nationality or scoring goals, it was the dive. As for the disgusting racist moron up thread, you are not wanted on here.

  8. Oh dear. Plenty on here showing their ignorance. It seems that some so called Spurs fans, although at least aware that Klinsmann is a German, no absolutely nothing else about him. I thought his famous goal scoring celebration was familiar to everyone, but maybe not.

  9. It’s genuinely very difficult in this busy life to listen news
    on Television, therefore I only use internet for
    that reason, and obtain the hottest news.
