Tottenham are poised to hand a new five-year contract to Kieran Trippier, according to The Telegraph.

Trippier emerged as Spurs’ first choice right-back towards the end of last season and it seems the club is set to reward him with a new deal.

Kyle Walker has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City for the last couple of months following a reported row with manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The Tottenham manager is believed to have concerns over Walker’s fitness and ability to play more than one match a week, something the right-back strongly disagrees with.

Walker began to lose his place in the starting line-up to Trippier in April. As a result, it appears Walker is on his way out while Trippier looks sure to receive a vote of confidence.

Tottenham are apparently refusing to budge on their £50 million asking price for Walker. The transfer could drag on through the summer, so Spurs are looking for certainty over Trippier’s future.



  1. Walker gives spurs much much more than trippier.faster by a mile in attack and defense, stronger presence. Spurs should keep him before trippier not strengthen citywide will be rivals.

    • Trippier is far better with the crosses though – some passes were phenomenal to say the least. I’d much rather Walker stays though. Wing-back a tough and demanding position so it would be better to have two excellent players available so they can be rotated. Rose /Davies and Walker/Trippier combinations are great for Spurs
