New Tottenham signing shares artwork of him in the new kit.

New Tottenham Hotspur signing Kevin Wimmer has shared a fantastic piece of artwork of himself in action wearing the club's new kit.

Wimmer, who will play his first game for the club in pre-season, shared the image with his 10,000 Twitter followers, communicating his excitement at getting started.

He became Tottenham's first summer signing earlier this transfer window, sealing a deal from German side FC Koln, later followed up by the addition of Burnley defender Kieran Trippier.

The defender is a likely replacement for Romanian international Vlad Chiriches, who is expected to leave the club for regular playing time, with The Mail linking him to Basel earlier this month.

Wimmer, 22, is currently on holiday, tweeting a photo 24 hours earlier of himself riding a jetski.

The defender will have to work hard to earn a starting place in the Tottenham side, with Jan Vertoghen, Eric Dier and Federico Fazio competing for positions, and assuming Younes Kaboul will too be moved on.

Spurs have also been linked by The London Evening Standard with a move for last season's Southampton loanee Toby Alderweireld, currently under contract to Spanish side Atletico Madrid.
