Newcastle United: Magpies ‘closing in’ on Kieran Trippier -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United are reportedly now ‘closing in’ on the potential signing of Kieran Trippier.

The Lowdown: Looking likely…

Football Insights have recently claimed that a deal for Trippier to move to St. James’ Park in the January transfer window is ‘all done’, with more information set to come out ‘in the next day or two’.

Should Newcastle sign Trippier?

Yes

Yes

No

No

A move would certainly make sense for all parties, given Eddie Howe’s strong relationship with Trippier dating back to their time with each other at Burnley, as Howe once said that he is ‘one of the best crossers of the ball’ that he has ever worked with (The Bournemouth Echo), while Trippier himself has claimed that Howe is a ‘great manager’ and has expressed his admiration for helping him personally (The Burnley Express).

Nonetheless, it is definitely a potential deal to look out for once the window opens.

The Latest: Newcastle ‘closing in’

As per talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook, the North East club are now ‘closing in’ on a deal to sign Trippier.

talkSPORT further his claim by adding that they are ‘pushing’ for his signature, and are ‘willing’ to make him their highest-paid player.

The Verdict: Smart move

Even though Trippier is 31 years of age now, he still has a lot to give, and he has shown at Atletico Madrid that he can play at the highest level.

Described as being ‘sensational’ in Spain recently by former top-flight striker Frank McAvennie, the Englishman was a key player in the Atletico side that won the La Liga title last season ahead of both Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.

Trippier is also renowned for his great deliveries into the box, as Howe has already lauded his crossing ability, and this has been emphasised throughout his career, in which he has grabbed no fewer than 79 assists in total for both club and country combined.

Nonetheless, he is a player who could help the frontline on Tyneside thrive, as former Premier League poacher Gabby Agbonlahor claims that ‘Callum Wilson would love the service’ that Trippier would bring in particular.

If he is up for a relegation fight, it would certainly be a smart move from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium.
