Official: Tottenham’s Kieran Trippier signs for Atletico Madrid

Atletico continue their spending spree

Atletico Madrid have announced the signing of Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier, in a deal which could reportedly cost them £25 milllion.

Going back to last summer, Trippier played a pivotal part in England’s run to the World Cup semi-finals, including his free-kick in the clash with Croatia.

While his tournament ended there, the full-back went on to enjoy a very successful club season with Spurs.

Tottenham impressed in the Premier League, but it was in the Champions League where people really took note.

The Lilywhites made it all the way to the final, though they were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool.

Now, Trippier will discover a new league next season.
