Not Walker – Tottenham Ready To Offer a New Improved Contract For Defender

Published

on

According to the Telegraph Tottenham are set to reward Kieran Trippier with a new and improved contract.

With all the rumours surround Kyle Walker and his impending move to Manchester City and more recently Bayern Munich, Spurs have reacted strongly by offering Trippier a new deal. The deal is set to be a five-year contract which will keep Trippier with Tottenham until 2022.

Trippier has emerged as the immediate first choice right-back for Spurs after the lengthy saga surrounding Kyle Walker. However, the report does not state the fee Spurs are willing to offer the player but given that he is on £35,000 a week he could be in line to receive a substantial pay rise.

Tottenham Hotspur signed Trippier from Burnley for £3.5 million and he has put in some solid performances for the club last season, which were enough to earn him an England call-up. Gareth Southgate has included Trippier in his England squad for the World Cup qualifiers and had this to say regarding the player (Telegraph):

“He’s a player that I’ve watched a lot, from when he was at Burnley. He has had limited game time at Spurs but he fits the profile of a full-back that we like – he’s very good with the ball and I like his mentality.

“He’s a player we wanted to bring in so he gets a feel for how we work, and it’s a good opportunity for us to look at him.

“He and Kyle Walker will have been pushing each other every day and, in my opinion, they along with Nathaniel Clyne are the three best right-backs in the country.”

Although Trippier may not be on the same level as Kyle Walker at the moment, the 26-year-old has the makings of a quality right-back and it is up to Mauricio Pochettino to nurture his talent to bring the best out of him.

Should Trippier step up his game he could end up being a vital cog in Pochettino’s system and revolution at Spurs. Tottenham have come close to winning the Premier League twice but it is up to the Argentine manager and the players collectively to take their performances up a notch and win some silverware.
