Boost for Southampton as Tottenham man confirms he wants to leave

Tottenham defender Kevin Wimmer has revealed that he is hoping to leave the North London club due to a lack of first team opportunities this past season, though he is hoping to remain in the English Premier League.

After signing a five year contract last summer, the Austrian international struggled to break into the Spurs first team and due the opportunities that were given to him, he failed to impress.

The 24-year-old Wimmer said, “It would be the most beautiful to stay in the Premier League. Twenty-four years is exactly the age at which it is most important to play regularly and not only have to train week after week and have to sit down on the bench at the game.”

Southampton are reportedly interested in signing him and the Saints interest in him will only intensify should they end up losing Virgil van Dijk, who has been the subject of interest of a number of clubs.
