Tottenham have received multiple approaches for in-demand defender Kevin Wimmer but are standing firm and do not want to sell, his agent has told ESPN.

The Austria international has played a bit part role for Mauricio Pochettino’s side so far this season, however, could become a key member in the wake of Jan Vertonghen’s recent injury.

Speaking to ESPN, Wimmer’s agent, Mithat Halis, said:

“Cologne made an offer. There have been a few offers from the Premier League and the Bundesliga. There is a lot of interest.

“Tottenham do not want to sell. All offers have been turned down and he is staying.”

The 24-year-old, who has made seven appearances so far this season, has been linked with a move to Premier League rivals Southampton, who have seen centre-half and captain Jose Fonte hand in a transfer request this month and will now being assessing their options.

Since arriving from German outfit Koln in the summer of 2015, the defender has made 28 appearances for the north London side, but is yet to find the back of the net.
