Kieran Trippier is set to be offered a new contract by Tottenham, according to ESPN.
The right-back arrived at White Hart Lane from Burnley two years ago and still has three years remaining on his five-year deal.
But Spurs want to tie Trippier down for his best years with an improved contract that will more accurately reflect his value to the current squad.
The 26-year-old has struggled to nail down a place in the first team over the last two seasons because of Kyle Walker’s impressive form.
Walker was voted into this season’s PFA Team of the Year by his peers, but a row with Mauricio Pochettino over his fitness and training level led to him being dropped for both the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea and last weekend’s north London derby.
Trippier appears to be Pochettino’s new preference in defence, whether in a back four or as a wing-back in a 3-4-2-1 system.
While it’s good to see players rewarded on merit, most Spurs fan will be keen to see another right-back arrive this summer if Walker does leave the club.
