Atletico Madrid have completed the signing of England full-back Kieran Trippier from Tottenham, with Danny Rose also possibly set to quit the Champions League finalists.

The 28-year-old has agreed a three-year deal with the La Liga outfit and joins for an undisclosed fee.

Trippier spent four years at Tottenham with his last appearance for the club coming in the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool.

“Atletico de Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement over the transfer of Kieran Trippier. The 28-year-old has signed a contract for the next three seasons,” a statement on the Atleti website read.

“With this signing, we add to our team a fantastic and experienced player who comes to us from the Champions League runners-up.

“The Englishman is a versatile full-back who can also play in midfield and has a fantastic right foot.

“Because of all this, we welcome Trippier to the Atleti Family and wish him the best of luck at his new home. Welcome, Kieran!”

A key man in England’s run to the last four of the 2018 World Cup, scoring the opening goal in the semi-final defeat to Croatia, Trippier’s form dipped during the course of the 2018/19 campaign.

But the former Manchester City trainee still made 38 appearances across all competitions as Spurs finished fourth and made it all the way to the Champions League final at Atletico’s Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

He will now call the Spanish capital home, with Atleti signing the right-back they were seeking having released the experienced Juanfran after his contract expired this summer.

Some reports suggested Spurs could sign striker Angel Correa from Atletico as part of the deal but Trippier departed in a cash-only transfer.

He moved to Tottenham from Burnley in 2015 after an impressive spell in the side at Turf Moor.

Having initially played second-fiddle to Kyle Walker, Trippier emerged as Mauricio Pochettino’s main right-back after Walker’s departure to Manchester City.

Trippier signed a new five-year deal at Spurs in 2017 but has now moved on, the club issuing a three-line statement confirming his departure and wishing him luck in the future.

Left-back Rose also appears set to land a move away from N17.

The club confirmed on Wednesday morning that the 29-year-old was not part of the squad travelling for their pre-season tour and announced he was one of three players left behind to work on a potential exit.

“Ben Davies, Eric Dier and Cameron Carter-Vickers will continue their rehabilitation at Hotspur Way,” a statement on the official Tottenham website read.

“Vincent Janssen, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Danny Rose have been granted additional time off in order to explore prospective opportunities with other clubs.

“Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez and Victor Wanyama will return to Enfield to start pre-season training next week following commitments with their national teams at summer tournaments.”

West Ham have announced the signing of striker Sebastien Haller from Eintracht Frankfurt for a club-record fee.

The 25-year-old scored 20 goals in 41 appearances last season and now becomes the most expensive player in West Ham’s history, eclipsing the fee the Hammers paid to land Felipe Anderson last year.

A former France Under-21 international who came through the ranks at Auxerre, West Ham have reportedly spent £45 million on the forward.

Haller has signed an initial five-year deal at London Stadium, with the club confirming the deal on Wednesday afternoon.

“West Ham are delighted to announce the arrival of prolific French striker Sebastien Haller, the club’s new record signing,” a statement read.

“The highly sought-after forward, who turned 25 in June, joins the Hammers on a five-year deal with an option of a further 12 months for an undisclosed fee from Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt.

“The deal for Haller means the Hammers have broken their transfer record for a third time in a little over a year following the captures of Issa Diop and Felipe Anderson.”

Haller joins Spain midfielder Pablo Fornals and goalkeeping duo Roberto and David Martin in signing for West Ham this summer.

He will not link up with his new team-mates until they return from China, where they are currently competing in the Premier League Asia Trophy.
