Report: Tottenham target Kieran Trippier to undergo medical in 24 hours

Burnley FC - Turf Moor

Tottenham are set to sign Kieran Trippier from Burnley.

Tottenham Hotspur are set to sign defender Kieran Trippier, and The Independent report a medical is to take place within 24 hours.

Trippier stands to become the club's second summer signing, following Kevin Wimmer who arrived from German side Cologne earlier this month.

The right-back will compete with Kyle Walker and DeAndre Yedlin for a position at right-back, with the American potentially going out on loan for the season.

Trippier was one of Burnley's stand out players despite their relegation from the Premier League last season, and is a former England under-21 international.

Burnley have already lost striker Danny Ings to Liverpool, but would surely rather let Trippier leave early on so they can begin their own transfer activity. It is reported the 24-year-old has a £3.5 million release clause in his contract, with Spurs have activated.

Trippier played in all 38 Premier League games for Burnley last season, and provided four assists.

As well as Wimmer and Trippier, Spurs are also set to integrate Dele Alli, signed from MK Dons in January, and welcome back Alex Pritchard and Milos Veljkovic from loan spells, while departures of fringe players like Etienne Capoue and Vlad Chiriches are expected.
