'Everything is in front of me' - Wimmer

Kevin Wimmer can hardly contain his excitement at joining the club - so much so, he can't pinpoint what he's looking forward to most!


The young Austrian defender, 22, completed his move from Bundesliga side Cologne on May 29 and took time out from preparing for this weekend's Euro 2016 qualifier in Russia to speak to us for the first time.

"First of all, there are not many Austrian players who have reached the Premier League, I’m now at Tottenham Hotspur, such a big club, always playing at the top and in European football," said Kevin.

"I’m looking forward to getting to know the team, the staff and it’s really good for my personal development.

"Everything is in front of me and now I have to give my best to get better and better.

"When I think about home games at White Hart Lane, they will be special, with the stadium full and the atmosphere very loud, very intense.

"The atmosphere must be amazing on matchday. I remember watching the game against Arsenal when Tottenham won 2-1, that was fantastic. For sure, I’m looking forward to that.

"There are a lot of things I’m looking forward to, it’s difficult to say what I’m looking forward to the most."
