According to Fabrizio Romano, Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier has agreed on personal terms with Newcastle United. The England international will soon join Newcastle United after an agreement between clubs. He will make a return to the Premier League after his spell at Tottenham Hotspur before Atletico Madrid.
Newcastle United now has enough sources to attract some players and give them a good amount of playing time. Moreover, the Newcastle takeover will allow them to offer wages according to players’ demands. The Magpies will look forward to building a strong challenging squad that will avoid the relegation zone, unlike this year.
Kieran Trippier is 31 years of age and has been at Atletico Madrid since 2019. He was linked with a move to Manchester United earlier this summer but that did not take place. However, Newcastle has shown their interest and Trippier has agreed to join them on personal terms.
Trippier has a contract with Atletico till June 2023 and still remains an important player to their squad. Therefore, may try to offer him renewal which can somehow affect the plans of Newcastle. However, if the player is willing to join then Newcastle may even offer extra fees if required. The offer which Newcastle has made to Trippier is said to be an offer that can not be refused.
What can Kieran Trippier offer Newcastle United?
Kieran Trippier can be relied on for defensive purposes or even when playing wide, he can provide width. His crossing is excellent and was one of Tottenham’s weapons to disrupt the opponent’s defense. He can adapt to managerial instructions as at Spurs he was allowed to take more risks but does not lose possession as much at Atletico.
Moreover, he has excellent quality and an eye for attacking. He can cross in beautiful balls or quick passes to the forwards. He can also take set pieces and is capable of scoring beauties from the dead ball. Trippier can play in any position on the right even as a wingback or fullback. In addition, he also played a couple of games on the left for England.
This versatility plus quality can help Newcastle add a different standard to their game. He can challenge and ask questions to opposition defenses with his crosses and passing ability. Although he may not be as quick as before, his awareness brings him to the place where he should be.
Kieran Trippier is not noticed as much but can catch the eye of spectators when he is in England. The Newcastle fans will now look forward to his performance in their shirt. Moreover, he will have a familiar environment when he is in England that can allow him to play better and deliver more for his team.
