Kieran Trippier set to be announced as Newcastle’s first signing under new owners

Kieran Trippier set to be announced as Newcastle’s first signing under new owners

Newcastle are on the verge of completing their first signing since the SAPIF took charge of the club back in October of 2021.

Trippier excels with Atletico Madrid

The player in question is, of course, Atletico Madrid and England right-back, Kieran Trippier.

On the back of a fairly disappointing campaign with Tottenham, Kieran Trippier signed for Atletico Madrid in 2019.

The Spaniards are believed to have paid around £20m to bring the Englishman to the Wanda Metropolitano.

The right-back went on to enjoy a solid debut campaign in La Liga, which saw him quickly recalled to the England set-up after he was dropped.

2020/21 was then a superb campaign for Tripper. He would feature 28 times in the league, providing six assists along the way as Atletico Madrid saw off FC Barcelona and Real Madrid to clinch their latest La Liga title.
