Kevin Wimmer will consider his Tottenham future if he is unable to play more first team football.
Since arriving in 2015, the 23-year-old has become a favourite of the White Hart Lane faithful and stepped in to replace the injured Jan Vertonghen last season where he was impressive alongisde Toby Alderweireld.
“The club say they see me as part of their future,” he said, as reported by the Sun on Sunday.
“I played quite often at the end of last season and had higher expectations for this term. But I was injured in pre-season and that set me back.”
With Vertonghen and Alderweireld at the heart of defence this season, Tottenham have conceded just three Premier League goals, fewer than any other club.
But Wimmer explained it is important for a player to play 90 minutes every week, adding it is not easy to train every week and find yourself on the bench, though he admits he is ‘patiently waiting’ for an opportunity.
“I will remain positive. We will see what happens in the next few weeks; how much I start. We have a few midweek matches.”
