Stoke bid Tottenham defender Kevin Wimmer

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has confirmed that his club are interested in signing Kevin Wimmer from Tottenham this summer.

Vorm has been number two to Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris for the past three seasons and Wimmer's days are numbered following the big money arrival of Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez.

There is serious Premier League interest in the defender with Crystal Palace and West Brom competing for his signature and the chase for him is only becoming more competitive towards the end of the window.

The Welshman now appears eager to further strengthen his defensive ranks ahead of Thursday's (31 August) transfer deadline and the Potters have also been mentioned in connection with an £8.5m swoop for Bjorn Engels of Club Brugge. "As you would imagine".

"We'll have to see how it pans out to see if it's viable".

Pressed as to whether or not Stoke had already submitted an official bid, Hughes added: "We've made an enquiry, that's my understanding".

"As we stand he's a Tottenham player and we'll see what they think needs to happen in terms of his future". "Obviously the player has a view on that as well".

De Boer said: "I'm not talking about transfer rumours [on Wimmer] like that". "I can say so many names. We need some players, because if some get injured we get a bit narrow, but if we don't get players in we have to deal with what we have".
