Trippier Signs Permanent Deal-3.5 Years!

Clarets media manager, Daz Bentley has just tweeted some breaking news that Burnley have signed Kieran Trippier on a permanent deal. Trips has agreed a three-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The rumours broke over the weekend that such a deal could be on the cards with reports suggesting the Clarets could be prepared to offer in the region of 1.3-1.8 million to secure the deal.

Trippier joined the Clarets on a season-long loan in the summer from Manchester City and has since made the right back spot his own with some impressive performances. This is all excellent news and makes up for the disappointment yesterday, losing to Leeds in the last few seconds of the game at Elland Road. It was also a match in which Trippier was sent off under controversial circumstances after picking up two yellow cards within a five minute spell. He will now suffer a one-match ban and will miss the FA Cup game against Norwich City at Carrow Road this Saturday but this latest news will hopefully lighten the load.

Cracking news, the lad is a winner, you can see it in his body language, he will also learn and get better. This signing says a lot about our ambition and desire imo. Maybe Kilby and co have learnt from not doing the same when Jack Cork was available in a January window. Howe also must be delighted as this is another piece of the jigsaw and bodes well for future loans coming our way.

I am trying to think of a better right back that we have had? He is better than Mears in so many ways and that then takes me back many many years before you start to find Burnley top flight/Championship right full backs that could have been better. I don't expect to go back to John Angus either!

By the way, Trips becomes the first new signing of the Lee Hoos CEO era. Lee grew up in Maryland USA when I was living there. I have done an article about him for the next WTBM. I sent it to him for comment, and he replied with a lovely story to add! We follow the same baseball team. But, no, I have not wasted his time or mine asking for the inside track at Bfc!

Delighted with this news. It took a while for some to warm to him and now it seems the perception is that he's a better player than Mears from the majority. I think it shows that supporters need to give players more time and trust in our manager to improve players, especially the younger ones. We just need the same to happen with Stanislas now.

Trippier is a fantastic player who has grown and progressed here at Burnley. The good news is it is a signing that obviously will not add to our wage bill so hopefully we can see some more new signings coming in. We are, after all, a little short in numbers.

Brilliant news after the last minute disappointment yesterday. As mentioned above, an improvement on Mears and with a much healthier attitude towards the shirt. And he can only get better.

I have heard more like 500K rather than the 1m + figures quoted above. Not sure on how it will affect our wage bill. It would not be surprising if we have offered him more money than we were paying to cover his loan, young players at big clubs not close to the first team are not paid king's ransoms.

Could be CC. Might be add-ons etc that take it nearer 1.3-1.8m. We must surely have some money in reserve re his salary, considering the number of players we removed from the payroll in the summer plus this season's parachute payment coming in

The Board and Eddie have gone up quite a few notches, maybe its the new CEO, maybe its experience of where we went wrong in the past? One thing for sure is, he loves a free kick, loves an overlap, delivers a great cross, likes taking corners, can throw the ball further than I could kick it, loves the shirt, needs to learn and work on his weknesses and then we have one hell of a prospect.

Good signing - Impressed with Trip. Also agree with the assesment by VR. If he can work on his weaknesses and continue to learn, we have gained a valuable asset both on and off the pitch.

Quite encouraged by Trips interview. He comes across quite well and he clearly bleeds Claret which is great! Really glad the Trust sponsored the lad now too

A very good permanent signing: he has done really well for a young lad since coming in on loan. Slightly better defensively than Mears, and arguably a better crosser of the ball. Add to that the fact that he is younger AND has a long throw, and I think off-loading TM for 1.5m and getting this guy for around half of that, and it shows that we are being astute, rather than tight, with our money...

I think they have learned their lesson after the Cork debacle and suspect the new CEO, Hoos has had some influence and shaken 'em up a bit. I would love to know if they did bring in Trips/Mee with a view to signing them on a perm originally. First time, I have heard Howe come out with that strategy statement on loans (see Mee article)

Fantastic news. Also, the report on MCFC official site also says "Burnley could tie up a deal for another Blues loan star, Ben Mee in the coming days."

Lancashire Telegraph understands club have paid a fee of around 400,000 for Trippier. That's an amazing bit of business if true

It, and his probable weekly, also suggest that comparisons with letting Cork go are of the apples and pears variety, rather than indicating financial lessons have been learned. Meanwhile, Saints have won how many of their last 5? Like Bfc, they are heading for the play-offs!

I would swop Saints season so far for ours anyday! QPR had a wobble this time last season but had already done enough to go up. Southampton are in same boat methinks and will come back strongly. If we had Cork in our team, I don't think we would ever have been within 15 minutes of being in bottom three! Southampton will not even taste that situation. The Baord are learning and its because enough fans have said they have had enough that they are! Good on them

OK here are my predictions for automatic promotion spots: Boro, WHU. Saints to lose in play-off semis, sparking mass player exit (at massive trading losses) to comply with probable new FL finance rules. Of course, we can't currently prove your theory or mine, tmp, and history is always contested. But the pattern of our Board's behaviour in 2011 could just as easily be interpreted as them having set out a plan with Eddie soon after he arrived and having stuck to it. Having a CEO working fulltime on player deals, as the Bfc announcement said Hoos is doing, may mean we are a bit sharper on our toes than when a Director with lots of other things on his plate was doing them? No disrespect to Flood, but Hoos will have made a lot more player deals in his career than Brendan, and that may be working slightly in our favour too. But as I've said elsewhere, Hoos and I support the same baseball team, so maybe I am being too kind to him? Knock, knock. Hoos there? Bfc's new CEO!
