Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly completed the sale of Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid today, with the right-back passing his medical in Spain.
The 28-year-old has signed a four-year deal with the Spanish giants and has reportedly fetched a fee of around £20m (BBC).
Trippier joined Spurs from Burnley back in 2015 for a fee of £3.5m, meaning that Spurs got four good years out of the defender while also making a big profit (Guardian).
Tripps played 114 games in his time at Spurs, scoring two goals in that time (Wikipedia). He was also a key part of the Champions League finalist squad last season.
This deal leaves Pochettino with just Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters in the right-back berth, although Juan Foyth was recently converted there for Argentina and Eric Dier has covered in the past.
Unfortunately, Trippier leaves North London on a sour note after a below-par season and heavy stick from fans, but everyone here at Spurs Web wishes him all the best for the future.
Spurs Web Opinion:
The wrong decision for me. Serge Aurier should have been first out the door all day long. I can see Tripps having a stellar season for Atletico and I think Tottenham have let a great player go based on one injury-hit campaign.
