The full-back could be followed out of Tottenham by Danny Rose.

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 LaLiga 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.

In a video posted on Atleti's official Twitter account, Trippier said: "It's an amazing feeling. I've always wanted to play abroad and what a place to play, in Madrid.

"It's a fantastic team with an unbelievable manager and I'm just looking forward to getting on with it now and meeting the team.

"They've been to some major finals and done so well in LaLiga over the years.

"It's something that I can't wait to do, to work with the manager, learn off the manager and help the team to be a success in the future.

"We've got some world-class players and you can see how close the manager is with his squad and I can't wait to be part of this."

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.

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."
