Kieran Trippier

Position:
Defender
Date signed:
7th January 2022

England international Kieran Trippier agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal in January 2022, becoming the first senior signing under the club's new owners and head coach Eddie Howe.

The 31-year-old arrived at St. James' Park having spent a successful two-and-a-half-year spell in Spain, culminating in La Liga triumph in 2020/21 as his Atlético Madrid side pipped rivals Real Madrid to the Spanish title.

Born in Bury, Greater Manchester, Trippier began his career at nearby Manchester City and made his first steps into senior football with loan spells at Barnsley and Eddie Howe's Burnley.

His loan spell with the Clarets was turned into a permanent switch in January 2012 and he helped the club to reach the Premier League in 2014, eventually clocking up four years at Turf Moor.

After becoming an established defender in the top flight, he completed a move to Tottenham Hotspur in summer 2015 and would go on to play Champions League football, as well as making his senior debut for England against France in June 2017 – the first of 35 international caps.

In July 2019, he made a high-profile switch to Diego Simeone's Atlético Madrid, becoming the club’s first English player in 95 years and making 28 league appearances last season as Atlético became Spanish champions.

He ended the 2020/21 campaign by starting for England in the UEFA European Championship final at Wembley as Gareth Southgate's Three Lions narrowly lost to Italy.​
