Spanish club, Atletico Madrid has confirmed the signing for Tottenham’s England full-back Kieran Trippier for £20m.
Trippier has been chosen as the man to succeed veteran Juanfran on the right side of defence, signing a three-year deal at the Wanda Metropolitana.
Confirming the news on their official website, Atletico Madrid wrote:
“Atletico Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have come to an agreement for the transfer of Kieran Trippier.”
“The English player, 28, has signed for the next three seasons.
“We welcome Trippier to the Atletico family and wish him the best of luck in his new home. Welcome, Kieran!”
Atletico paid out £20 million ($25m) for the player, a fee that could rise in the future due to add-ons and bonuses negotiated between the two clubs.
Trippier had already been left out of Tottenham’s pre-season touring squad as he closed on a switch to the Spanish capital.
