Trippier Trips over to Turf on Season-Long Loan

Trippier Trips over to Turf on Season-Long Loan

Burnley have another new face in their squad but still await their first permanent signing of the summer. Full back,Kieran Trippier has arrived today on a season-long loan from Manchester City.

The Bury-born 20 year old is already an England Under 21 international but has still to make his City debut.

Trippier made a one month loan move to Barnsley in February 2010 and then returned to Oakwell for a second spell on loan in August 2010 before extending this to a loan until the end of the season in January 2011.

He is widely expected to take over the right back position recently vacated by Tyrone Mears and will play with his City team mate Ben Mee in the back four. Trippier will feature tonight in the friendly against Oldham at Boundary Park.

Think we are probably going to have one of the youngest squads in the Championship! Will be interesting to see if we lack experience as the season progresses.

So, who's your starting back four for Watford? And with only room for 5 on the bench now, who's on yours for that game?

I dont really like loans I mean can they be called Burnley players, look what happend to Jack cork. I suppose he did good for us but what happens at the end of a season, you can not build a team for the future around loan players.

I would hope he is in for cover for a more experienced right-back or we could be in trouble for that area this season.

Cardiff had 8 loan players last year and made the play-offs. Capped at U-21 and with a full Championship season under his belt... stop fussing and start this lad at RB! Duff and Edgar can cover there. It's cover in midfield we need most now: one on the left, one on the right and one in the middle! Or get another striker and look on Jay Rod and Pato as your left and right covers. Presumably the focus on youth is based on a view that young players are more likely to appreciate in value than older ones. 'Proven quality' today = 'old crock' tomorrow'.

Never played for City and played on loan at Barnsley who only just beat the drop, just the kind of experience we need then to replace Mears, get a grip CP ;-)

Think its a very good move for the clarets hope he's plays RB and in stead of rushing to buy someone. We have all August to buy some new players.

One minute we're crying cos we miss out on Barnsley's Shackell, the next we're crying cos we get a player the richest club in the world thinks is too good for them?

One of the problems that Cardiff now face is losing all their loans and having to rebuild but this kid sounds a goodun! Now all we need is another Citeh player, called Vlad Weiss on the wing to replace Eagles and we could be well placed. Bit of a gamble though still all this youth when we really need to get promotion this season (to avoid FIFA Fair Play 12/13) and I would prefer some permanent signings. I sense though we are much more financially stuffed than we are trying to make out but let's see how our final squad shapes up come end Summer transfer window before making a final judgement [Edited by turfmanphil]
