The Tottenham Hotspur man is linked with a loan switch to Germany.
The Austrian centre-back, who has started two Premier League games this season, will re-join former club Koln on loan, according to the German outlet.
The 24-year-old impressed for Tottenham in the second half of last season but it would appear as if Mauricio Pochettino has no need for the defender.
He looked a very able deputy for the injured Jan Vertonghen last term and, with the Belgian set to miss the trip to Watford through suspension and Toby Alderweireld out injured, it seems an odd time to let Wimmer leave.
And fans of the North London club certainly are not entertaining the idea that Pochettino would let him leave at the moment.

What's this about Wimmer leaving? So who plays v Watford? & who plays he 476 Europa League games we have coming up (if get to semis) #THFC— Chris Wyse (@sunners14) December 29, 2016
Loaning out Kevin Wimmer would make no sense. Toby can't put a run of games together, Dier isn't a CB, and CCV unproven. Pointless! #THFC— Ben (@thespursramble) December 29, 2016
Loaning Wimmer would be a good opportunity for him to develop, also gives CCV bench and cup game time. Not an awful idea.— BB (@BygravesTHFC) December 29, 2016
If this Wimmer stuff is true you'd imagine the players will have known about it. Making Vertonghen's actions last night even more moronic.— Liamo (@LiamoCOYS) December 29, 2016
@LiamoCOYS If Wimmer is going off on loan why did he sign a new contract earlier this month?— Sean Connolly (@sean90) December 29, 2016
Wimmer, as proven last season, has the capacity to be a very fine centre-half, but the reality is that he won't displace Vertonghen or Alderweireld any time soon.
Still, there is easily a number of Premier League clubs who would happily take him but, if true, it seems like the Argentine manager would prefer to see him leave England.
