Atlético Madrid officially announced the arrival of Kieran Trippier on Wednesday. The 28-year-old English defender comes over from Tottenham Hotspur.
Atlético pays a transfer fee of around 22 million euros for Trippier, which signs a three-year contract until the summer of 2022 in the Wanda Metropolitano.
Trippier played for Tottenham in the last four seasons. He played 114 official games in total during that period, in which he scored two goals and delivered 24 assists.
The right back previously wore the shirts of Barnsley (2010-2011), Burnley (2011-2015) and Manchester City, where he went through youth training and debuted in professional football in 2007.
With Tottenham, Tripper reached the final of the Champions League last season, including by beating Ajax in the semi-final. Liverpool was 2-0 too strong in the final battle.
Trippier came to England for sixteen international matches. He finished fourth with the English at the World Cup last year in Russia and made his only goal for the 'Three Lions' in the lost semi-final against Croatia (2-1) from a free kick.
