Kevin gained his first Austria cap in 2013, after featuring in the country's Under-21 and Under-18 sides.
A strapping central defender, who likes to play the ball out of defence, Spurs signed the central defender as one for the future, making him their first summer signing that year. However, he rarely got a run in the side, although he deputised for Jan Vertonghen well in the period between the end of January to April of the 2015-16 season and won another cap for Austria, but with the Belgian pairing of Vertonghen and Alderweireld made it difficult for him to break into the team and in the summer transfer widow of 2017, he was sold to Stoke City for a handsome profit.
