It looks like it won’t be long before Trippier’s transfer is made official, with the former Tottenham man poised to put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half-year contract, while a fee has been agreed between the two clubs.
This could be a superb first signing of this new era at Newcastle under the club’s wealthy Saudi owners.
