The 23-year-old was a summer acquisition from German side FC Koln and made 21 appearances in all competitions during a strong first term.

Wimmer was primarily used as cover for starting duo Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen but was handed a 10-game run between January and April.

The Austrian admitted it was an “unbelievable” first campaign in England and hopes the squad can keep improving in 2016-17.

Wimmer said: “It’s true, when you think now that we nearly won the title, for me personally in my first year in England, it’s unbelievable.

“I knew Tottenham Hotspur as a club that fights for the top four – this was also our target this season and we did well. Then we also had the chance to win the title – in the end we were very close but I think we’ll just get stronger out of this and hopefully next season we can do a little bit better.

“I think we did well in the Europa League and I think overall we can be happy with most of our performances this season. It was a long season, a hard and very tough one, but we played well and we’re looking forward to next year now.”
