Tottenham Hotspur player Kieran Trippler has been consistently linked with a move away from White Hart Lane all summer, alongside other players.
Reports say the former Burnley defender has met with the management of Spurs to complain bitterly about his lack of playing chances, as well as the numerous speculations over his future with the North London outfit.
The 25-year old wasn’t even on the bench when Spurs played a 1-1 draw with Everton in the first round of games. Coach Mauricio Pochettino didn’t consider him in the 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace and the 1-1 draw against Liverpool. Tottenham have had decent players in full back position in the past couple of seasons. Kyle Walker and DeAndre Yedlin used to contest for space with Trippler in the first team.
Walker is the first choice for the position, and Yedlin has moved on to Newcastle, so Trippler wanted to know what was next for him this term. Last season, Trippler got time playing in the Europa League and domestic cup games. He featured in 19 games, getting 90 minutes in European games. His last league appearance was back in early March, so he wants to know his fate before the transfer window closes.
Reports say Pochettino doesn’t want to let the player go; in light of the numerous competitions they are involved in this term. The Champions League is set to begin in a matter of weeks, and there are the domestic cup games as well. Walker walked off the pitch in the draw against Liverpool, meaning Trippler could get action pending his return.
Trippler joined from Burnley in 2015 for £3.5 million, so Spurs would want o ask for fee in that region if he is to leave the club. However, with the departure of Yedlin, and the numerous games Trippler might remain for at least another year.
