Tottenham Confirm Kieran Trippier Has Signed New 5-Year Deal
Tottenham have announced that Kieran Trippier has extended his contract with the club after putting pen to paper on a new five-year deal.
Spurs confirmed via their Twitter account that the right-back has committed his long-term future to the club, with his contract running until 2022.
26-year-old Trippier joined Spurs from Burnley in 2015 for a fee of £3.5m, where he has since gone on to play 41 matches for the club over his two seasons at White Hart Lane.
The recent transfer of Kyle Walker to Manchester City is set to allow Trippier to move out of his understudy role and take centre stage for Mauricio Pochettino's side next season.
His passing, vision, tactical awareness and attacking flair are his key assets which have seemingly softened the blow of Walker's departure, who he could even go on to challenge for a starting spot with England - if his performances continue to show the promise exemplified at the end of last season.
Following his contract extension Trippier spoke with the club, he said: "I'm delighted with the news with my new deal, it's a great achievement for myself and i'm just delighted to get it signed.
"I always believed that I can play at the top level and like I say I've been working hard, even when I've not been playing, I've been keeping my head down in training and games and been working hard for my opportunities.
"Back end of last season I got my opportunities and I try to do my best. It's been a good two years, I've met a lot of good people, good teammates, and I've really enjoyed myself," he added.
