Former Burnley defender Kieran Trippier says that he is excited by the possibility of featuring for a big club like Tottenham Hotspur.
The defender recently completed a switch to White Hart Lane from the relegated team Burnley. Even though his transfer fee may be just around £ 5 million, Trippier is expected to be a key part of Spurs going forward. After all, the youngster was one of the major attacking forces of Burnley despite being a defender. At just 24 years of age, he still has the capability to learn a lot more in the game.
Trippier is primarily looking forward to playing in front of a packed White Hart Lane, which is one of the noisiest grounds in England. Spurs did no negotiations with Burnley over the transfer of Trippier as they agreed to meet the release clause his contract. The exact details of his transfer fee have not been disclosed. In the past four years at Burnley, Trippier made close to 200 appearances and he was also a key part in the club rise to the Premier League. It was always expected that top names like Trippier would depart Burnley if the club failed to stay in the top division and it proved to be the case.
“I knew a few of the players before I joined and it’s key to bond with the lads as soon as possible, so it’s been a great couple of days.Ever since I first walked through the doors, everyone in the club has made me feel so welcome, the staff have been great and so have my teammates.It’s a huge club but it feels like home straight away. I’m really looking forward to the challenges ahead,” said the defender, who is likely to be joined by several new faces.
