Matthias Ginter has completed his transfer from Borussia Dortmund to Borussia Monchengladbach, ending speculation about a potential move to Tottenham.

Primarily a centre-back, the German has also been known to slot in at right-back and defensive midfield. At 23-years-old, the versatile defender seemed like a perfect match for a Mauricio Pochettino team.

Ginter would have provided competition for Eric Dier on the right of a back three. He would have also challenged Kieran Trippier for his spot at right-back with Kyle Walker expected join Manchester City in the coming weeks.

But the World Cup winner has made a decision to stay in Germany, joining Monchengladbach for around £15 million.

Spurs are looking to consolidate their options in defence by offering new contracts to Trippier and centre-back Toby Alderweireld. Kevin Wimmer is expected to leave the club.

With Ginter no longer a target, it’s likely Pochettino will pursue alternative options. Ajax’s Joel Veltman is still believed to be on Tottenham’s shortlist.
