How Twitter reacted as Tottenham awarded Kieran Trippier a five-year contract extension

After Kyle Walker’s departure to Manchester City was confirmed at the back end of last week, Tottenham’s official website announced this afternoon that Kieran Trippier has signed a new deal.

It is understood that the 26-year-old right-back – who was signed from fellow top-flight outfit Burnley for £3.5 million in 2015 – has penned an extension that will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2022.

Trippier put in a string of impressive performances during the second-half of last season, being selected ahead of Walker for the north London derby and FA Cup semi-final clash against Chelsea.

He made 12 Premier League appearances for Tottenham last season, contributing five assists – resulting in his debut England call-up against France – and he looks set to be the first-choice right-back this year.

It was Tottenham who took to social media first to announce the news…

With former side Burnley offering their congratulations…

And some Spurs fans were thrilled…

Others wondered whether he could be as good as Walker in the long-term…

Whilst some were wondering when Mauricio Pochettino will delve into his pockets…

But one man in particular decided to focus on Trippier’s photogenic ability…

What do you think Spurs fans? Is Trippier the man to nail down the right-back slot? Let us know below.
