A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts on a report by Sky Sports News suggesting that Spurs will not be signing a new right-back this summer.

Tottenham sold England international Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid earlier this month in a reported £20million deal (BBC Sport), the 28-year-old calling time on his Lilywhites career following more than 100 appearances for the North London club.


Although Trippier's performances came under criticism by a number of Tottenham fans from time to time, the departure deprives Spurs of an experienced right-back, though Serge Aurier, Juan Foyth and Kyle Walker-Peters can play in that position.

Foyth is suspended for the start of the Premier League season and Aurier has seen his pre-season delayed due to his international duties with Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup of Nations - nonetheless, Sky Sports News has claimed that Mauricio Pochettino is happy going forward with the aforementioned players at right-back.

The report has been met with a mixed reaction by a number of Tottenham fans on social media - here are some of the comments:

Tottenham have two pre-season friendlies left - against Real Madrid and Inter Milan - before their Premier League campaign gets under way with new-boys Aston Villa visiting the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday 10 August.
