Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kieran Trippier is closing in on a move to Atletico Madrid, according to reports.

The 28-year-old has played 114 times for Spurs in all competitions since a £3.5million transfer from Burnley in 2015.

Trippier’s contract at Tottenham runs until 2022 but the Manchester City academy graduate has been heavily linked with a move this summer.

Now BBC Sport report that the England international is nearing a £20million switch to the La Liga outfit.

If the deal is sealed it would mean the full-back’s final match for the North London club came in the Champions League final defeat against Liverpool – played at Atleti’s Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

This summer Diego Simeone’s side, who finished as runners-up in Spain last year, have already brought in centre-back Felipe from Porto, left-back Renan Lodi from Athletico Paranaense, Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente, plus Benfica forward Joao Felix for a club-record £113m.
