Tottenham Hotspur reportedly don’t plan to sign another right back.

Tottenham Hotspur confirmed a major exit on Wednesday, as right back Kieran Trippier has left the club to join Atletico Madrid over in Spain.

Trippier, 28, has spent four years with Spurs having joined from Burnley in 2015, and he racked up more than 100 appearances for the club.

The England international has been relied upon heavily since Kyle Walker’s exit in 2017, but Spurs have chosen to cash in and sell him to Diego Simeone’s Atletico.

You would think that this leaves Tottenham with a major hole to fill in the transfer market, but that may not actually be the case for Mauricio Pochettino.

The London Evening Standard claim that Pochettino has no plans to make a signing to replace Trippier, and will instead go with what he already has in the position.

That’s somewhat strange as the current options are Serge Aurier, Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth; so, a player who is also available, a youngster with just four Premier League starts last season and a centre back who was sent off in his last appearance at right back.

Unsurprisingly, Pochettino’s plans haven’t gone down well with fans, with many taking to Twitter to claim that this is a terrible idea given the options he actually has.

Some feel that Tottenham are showing no ambition by not going for a Trippier replacement, adding that it’s hard to trust in Pochettino on this subject, as he showed little faith in any of the other options last season, but now they’re expected to play regularly.
