Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Move to activate Trippier release clause; Levy meeting over Martial

White Hart Lane 5

A round-up of the latest Tottenham Hotspur transfer news.

Trippier incoming?

Tottenham Hotspur have made contact with Burnley over signing full-back Kieran Trippier, The Mirror report.

Spurs were first linked with the defender a fortnight ago, and Liverpool are believed to hold an interest in signing him too, but the paper reports Tottenham have made the first move.

Liverpool signed Tripper's former Burnley teammate Danny Ings earlier this week.

Trippier has a release clause of £3.5 million, which the paper report Spurs have moved to activate, which will then enable them to discuss personal terms with the former England under-21 international.

The defender would provide competition at right-back for Kyle Walker and DeAndre Yedlin, who could be moved into midfield.

Martial meeting

French website Le10Sport report Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has held a meeting with Monaco's president VAdim Vasilyev over the signing of Anthony Martial.

It is claimed Levy was told at the summit that Martial is not for sale, and Monaco intend to attempt to get the French under-21 striker to extend his contract.

FranceFootball magazine had claimed earlier this week that the two clubs had agreed a fee of €25 million for the striker.

FourFourTwo reported Monaco boss Leandro Jardim stating earlier in the day that selling Martial is not part of the club's plans and he has received assurances this will not change.
