Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier is set to leave the club for Atletico Madrid, according to Football London.
A medical is set for the England international in the Spanish capital and a deal is now close.
A fee of around £25 million has been agreed between the two parties.
Trippier struggled for form during the 2018/19 campaign, with Mauricio Pochettino subsequently deciding to offload him.
Bayern Munich, Juventus and Napoli have all shown interest in Trippier during the transfer window, according to Football London.
The 28-year-old had been deemed surplus but it does leave the club with a void to fill.
Pochettino will now fly to Singapore and Shanghai with Kyle Walker-Peters as the only recognised right-back in his squad.
Trippier will end a four-year association with Tottenham. He signed from Burnley for £3.5 million in 2015.
Following news of an imminent departure, Spurs supporters took to Twitter.
Most are resigned to the fact that the club could do a lot better, although many concede they do now need a right-back sharpish.
It could be an interesting couple of weeks for those of a Tottenham persuasion, with transfer activity likely to increase.
Here is a selection of tweets following news of a deal being agreed for Trippier’s departure:
I hope we get an RB or else that's awful news.

So many people with short term memories. Yeah, he didn’t have his greatest season last year but he has been a solid player for us over he last few years! Arguably one of the best RB’s in the league in his 2nd season. How about congratulating him rather than slagging him off 🙄

Still a brilliant deal. Foyth getting a big chance at right back? Really can’t see KWP making it even though I’m a big fan

Tidy bit of business this if true … profit of some 21.5m that can be recycled into strengthening the position with a more suitable RB for the system we play

Bit harsh to celebrate this, but 25m is decent business. Will miss ya Trips

Good luck to him. Nice move & he'll do well in Spain!

In the last 18 months Trippier has been linked to Real Madrid, Napoli, Juventus, Bayern & now Atletico Madrid. Nothing further to add. Just wanted to tweet that.

Genuinely hope he gets a good move somewhere. Didn’t have a great season but his attitude has always been exemplar.

All the best Kieren Trippier just not up to the standard we required and unfortunately cost us too many points … wish you well for the future
