Newly-signed Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier has taken to social networking site Twitter to thank the Burnley fans for their support over the past four years.
“At Burnley, we knew it was going to be difficult last year but now, coming to Spurs, I want to improve,” added Trippier on Tottenham’s official website.
“I’m hungry to remain involved in the Premier League, it’s where I’ve always wanted to be since I was very young and I’ve got a great chance now with Tottenham.
“I’ll take every opportunity I get with both hands and hopefully play my part for everyone at the club.”
Trippier initially joined Burnley on a season-long loan deal from Manchester City in the summer of 2011 and moved to the Clarets on a permanent contract in 2012.
Over the past three years, the former England Under-21 international established himself as one of the best players for Burnley.
The 24-year-old was an important player for Burnley in the recently concluded 2014-15 campaign, and did all he could to prevent the Clarets from getting relegated to the Championship.
Trippier created 63 chances in 38 Premier League appearances in 2014-15. The 24-year-old had a pass accuracy of 61% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and won 68 headers, 26 dribbles and 57 tackles.
