Trippier Signs Permanent Deal-3.5 Years!

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.

Great stuff...just hope it's not at the expense for someone else going.

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.
