Transfers: Tottenham’s Kieran Trippier Joins Spanish Giants Atletico Madrid

Tottenham’s England full-back Kieran Trippier has completed a move to Atletico Madrid, the Spanish club confirmed on Wednesday.

Trippier, 28, put pen to paper on a three-year deal at the Wanda Metropolitana.

Atletico paid out £20 million ($25m) for the player, a fee that could rise in the future due to add-ons and bonuses negotiated between the two clubs.

“Atletico Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have come to an agreement for the transfer of Kieran Trippier,” Atletico confirmed on the club’s official website.

The Colchoneros have invested heavily in shoring up their defence so far in the summer transfer window.

With stalwart centre-back Diego Godin leaving for Inter, Atleti swooped for Porto’s Felipe as a replacement for the Uruguayan.

Felipe’s fellow Brazilian Renan Lodi also joined from Athletico Paranaense, making Trippier the third defensive signing of the summer.
