Well, this does seem very strange timing, loaning Kevin Wimmer back to FC Koln for the remainder of the season. Multiple sources from Germany, including Kicker magazine suggest this is now a done deal basically and will be finalised by the weekend.
Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen both failed to avoid picking up yellow cards and miss the trip to Watford on. Will the Austrian be allowed to play in that game, normally when a deal is imminent the player doesn't play to avoid any injuries.
I'd be amazed if this were true, everything I have heard says he is going nowhere until the summer and then his situation will be discussed. Toby Alderweireld has to recover from his virus, Jan Vertonghen could get a retrospective ban for his hand in the face of Rodriguez. Personally, I don't see that the authorities can do anything, especially after Fonte dived in with studs showing and both feet off the floor. That's a straight red card as he isn't in control of the challenge.
There is too much uncertainty to loan him out at the moment surely. There is a UEFA Europa League campaign to come as well.
Perhaps Cameron Carter-Vickers has been showing up well in training and we are going to show more faith in him, perhaps we have a centre-half lined up, unlikely though. There is a story in the Sun that we are interested in 33-year-old (34 next February) Real Madrid centre-back Pepe.
Until I hear to the contrary, I'll stick to the belief he isn't going anywhere.
