Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier is close to completing a move to Atletico Madrid.

The England international will cost the Spanish club in the region of €22 million and is expected to fly to Spain for a medical today.

Trippier's last game for Spurs was the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool in June at Atletico's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

The 28-year-old joined Spurs from Burnley in June 2015 and has played 114 times for the North London club.

Trippier benefited from Kyle Walker leaving Spurs for Manchester City in the summer of 2017 and he impressed as a regular in the 2017/18 season.

That form earned him a spot in England's World Cup squad with Trippier one of the standout performers for Gareth Southgate's side in Russia last year, scoring a free-kick in the semi-final defeat to Croatia.

Atletico are on the lookout for a new right-back after releasing the experienced Juanfran this summer.

Diego Simeone has already signed the likes of Joao Felix from Benfica and Felipe from Porto but Atleti did sell Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona.
