Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier has revealed that he would welcome a return to the Premier League.

Trippier left North London for Atletico Madrid in a deal worth £20million in 2019, having racked up more than 100 appearances in all competitions for Spurs following his move from Burnley (BBC).

The 31-year-old was critical of Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy over the manner of his exit from Tottenham, saying they failed to disclose their plans to sell him and would have been happy to remain at the club if they had said he would remain as part of their plan (The Beautiful Game Podcast).

Trippier made 35 appearances in all competitions for Atletico last season, helping the club lift the La Liga title for the first time in seven years.

The England international was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United earlier this summer, with The Athletic having claimed that the defender, who is from Bury was house hunting.

Trippier told the Daily Mail: “I would love to play in the Premier League again,” 

“I know what I came here to do and I have done it.”

Tottenham made a big mistake in selling Trippier, who could easily have still been the club’s first-choice right-back for the past couple of years ahead of the likes of Matt Doherty and Serge Aurier.
