Tottenham’s Kieran Trippier signs four-year Atletico Madrid deal

Atletico Madrid have a ‘done deal’ to sign Tottenham full-back Kieran Trippier in a £20m (€22m) move and a four-year contract.

The details of the arrangement have been reported by BBC Sport’s David Ornstein who believes the transfer will be announced on Wednesday evening.

The 28-year-old’s form at Spurs stagnated last season and the club are said to be open to a sale which will allow them to reinvest in their squad.

The former Burnley defender helped his nation to last year’s World Cup semi-final while he has also helped Spurs reach the final of this season’s Champions League.

A host of defenders are leaving Atleti this summer – the departures of Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin and Juanfran Torres have all been confirmed, with Trippier likely to be a direct replacement for the latter.

Meanwhile Filipe Luis could also potentially depart following the expiration of his contract (although the club remains in talks) while full-back Santiago Arias has also been linked to a summer departure.

A variety of reports earlier in the summer had linked Trippier with a summer move to Napoli from North London.
