‘Delighted’ Trippier Signs New Contract

As reported by SkySports, 26 year old right-back Kieran Trippier has committed his future to Tottenham, signing a new five year deal.

At the back-end of last season, Trippier emerged as first choice right-back after featuring in important home victories over Arsenal and Manchester United, as well as the FA Cup Semi-Final.

Registering 5 assists in the Premier League, the joint highest from a defender all season, Trippier utilised the game-time he was given despite being somewhat over-shadowed by English counter-part Kyle Walker, who recently joined Manchester City for some £50 million.

Now, the full-back has committed his future to the club until 2022, in officially signing a contract rumoured to be agreed back in June.

“I’m delighted with the news,” Trippier told Tottenham’s official club website. “It’s a great achievement for myself and I’m just delighted to get it signed now and get stuck in with pre-season.”

“Obviously I was raring to go all last season and the season before, I was just waiting for my opportunities. If I get the opportunity to play even more, I will grab it with both hands and I won’t look back.”

Trippier also earned himself his first England cap, in a starting appearance in a friendly against France last month, in which England were narrowly defeated 3-2.

The right-back went on to speak out on the enlightening experience with the national side too. He said:

“It feels like I’ve progressed a lot since I’ve been here and I’ve got to thank my team-mates and the manager for that.”

“I’ve learned a lot – obviously I’m delighted to be with England, it was a great experience, getting the feel of it and how they work, and at the back end of last season I was really enjoying it here at the Club.”

“I didn’t want it to end, really, because I was getting a lot of game time, so I’m just looking forward now.”
