The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern were pleased with the fine form of Kieran Trippier last season…
Brought in to the side in place of Kyle Walker, the defender quickly impressed, and Walker’s future has been uncertain ever since. In truth, Walker had been able to coast on the right-hand side for several months, with seemingly no realistic chance of losing his place in the first team.
Trippier, though, soon came in and really impressed – delivering fine performances both offensively and defensively, and Walker was very quickly left on the bench.
It came as no surprise to the fans in the Transfer Tavern, then, to learn that Tottenham are said to be keen on offering him a new long-term deal. His form has certainly deserved a new deal, whilst the breakout nature of his performances last season will likely have made Mauricio Pochettino keen to secure his long-term future.
Indeed, the Tottenham fans on Twitter are pretty pleased too, with many touting just how deserving the defender is of a new deal…
Throughly deserved, need too tie Toby down to a new deal first

why do spurs need to replace Kyle Walker is he goes to City? I think Trippier is class. #Spurs
