Kieran Trippier is also officially the new player of Newcastle United. The right-back of the English national team spent several seasons at Atletico Madrid, but never managed to be in shape as was the case at Tottenham and Burnley.
Ultimately, Newcastle United has serious plans for this season as well as next. Primarily, the goal of this season is survival, and next season will certainly go towards bigger goals (of course if they stay in the league).
