Stoke City took Kevin Wimmer from Tottenham Hotspur in 2017 and offered him a five-year contract.

The Potters were relegated in the Austria international’s first campaign at the bet365 Stadium and he was then sent out on loan to Hannover 96 and Royal Excel Mouscron in the last two seasons.

Austrian journalist Peter Linden, who has worked for Krone for over three decades, has provided an update on the defender’s future in his personal blog.

According to Linden, FK Austria Wien are showing interest to take the centre-back this summer.

The journalist claims FK Austria Wien’s sporting director Peter Stöger has already held talks with the 27-year-old’s agent. Luckily for the former, a deal can be concluded because Stoke are ready to sanction the transfer.

Linden adds the English side will allow their player go out on another loan spell, which will be free of charge. In addition to this, Stoke are also willing to pay a large part of Wimmer’s salary.

The ex-Spurs man knows Peter Stöger personally because of their past association with FC Köln.

Linden also explains Wimmer indirectly made sure Stöger found out about his situation at Stoke, which could be an indication that he is open to joining FK Austria Wien this summer.
