Tottenham Hotspur have tied down the impressive defender until 2021.
The Austrian centre-back only arrived at White Hart Lane 12 months ago, signing from Cologne to act as back-up to Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, and while he had to be patient for his chance he certainly seized it when it came.
An injury to Vertonghen in January gave Wimmer the chance to impress and he made his mark from the outset.
By the end of the season the 23-year-old had featured 10 times for Tottenham in the league and 21 times in all competitions.
With Tottenham’s other senior centre-backs playing regularly at Euro 2016, Wimmer’s relative freshness could come in very handy at the start of the new campaign, even if he was involved in the Austria squad that disappointed in the summer tournament.
After the news of Wimmer’s contract we took to Twitter to see what Tottenham fans thought and you can read a selection of what we found below:

Gratz to Kevin Wimmer on new 5 year contract.— Tottenham LIVE! (@TottenhamLIVE) July 21, 2016
He saved our ass with a superb shift last season when Jan was out.
Worthy of some
If there ever was a success of Mitchell and his team it's Wimmer. Never looked out of place. https://t.co/fw4HInLYSJ— Josh (@AlienatorDr) July 21, 2016
