Newcastle agrees to sign Trippier from Atletico Madrid

Newcastle United have agreed a fee of £12 million with Atletico Madrid to sign England international fullback Kieran Trippier, multiple media reports said on Tuesday. 

It will be Newcastle’s first signing since they were taken over by Saudi Arabian owners, who have been expected to flex their financial muscle in the January transfer window.

The 31-year-old must still undergo a medical examination, before reuniting with manager Eddie Howe, who signed the right-back from Manchester City for Burnley in January 2012.

Trippier moved from Turf Moor to Tottenham Hotspur and then Spain, where he helped Atletico to last season’s LaLiga title.

Trippier has won 35 caps for England.
