Tottenham Hotspur's latest piece of business will allegedly lead to Manchester City banking £1.24million
The right-back was an ever-present for Sean Dyche’s side last season and his fine form saw Tottenham make an early move for him despite the presence of Kyle Walker and DeAndre Yedlin.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for those two players, but if Trippier continues his recent form he should be a regular starter for Tottenham in no time.
He has come a long way in a short space of time but his spell at City’s academy means Burnley will not be the only ones to benefit from the money Tottenham spent this summer.
Trippier joined City’s youth academy back in 1999 and he was there until 2008. While never making a senior appearance for the Blues, he went on loan to Barnsley and Burnley before the latter signed him permanently in 2012.
However, ESPN reports that as part of the deal City would get 40 per cent of the profits from any future sale, meaning Manuel Pellegrini’s men look set for a £1.24million windfall.
Given the money at City’s disposal it may be a drop in the ocean, but it also means Burnley are not taking home anywhere near the full amount Tottenham agreed to pay for one of their standout players.
