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.
