Atletico Madrid have agreed a fee with Tottenham to sign England defender Kieran Trippier it is understood.

The 28-year-old is expected to undergo a medical in Spain on Wednesday ahead of a potential move to the LaLiga outfit.

Trippier, has spent the last four years at Tottenham and started their Champions League final defeat to Liverpool in the final game of last season.

A key man in England's run to the last four of the 2018 World Cup, scoring the opening goal in the semi-final defeat to Croatia, Trippier's form dipped during the course of the 2018/19 campaign.

But the former Manchester City trainee still made 38 appearances across all competitions as Spurs finished fourth in the Premier League and made it all the way to the Champions League final in Madrid.

The Spanish capital now looks set to become his new home with Atleti looking to recruit a new right-back having released the experienced Juanfran after his contract expired this summer.
