After two and a half years playing in Spain for Diego Someone’s side where he helped them to La Liga triumph last season, the former Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur fullback returns to the Premier League.

Trippier said at his unveiling: “I’m delighted to be joining this fantastic club. I really enjoyed my time in Madrid, but when I became aware of interest from Newcastle United, and having worked with Eddie Howe before, I knew this was where I wanted to be.

“I’m aware there is a lot of work ahead of us but I know the demands of Premier League well and I know what an amazing club this is with very talented players. I can’t wait to get started and I’m excited to step out at St. James’ Park as a Newcastle player.”

Eddie Howe who first signed the defender for Burnley back in 2011 is delighted to be reuniting with the 31 year old. “I am really pleased to welcome Kieran to Newcastle United. I have long admired his abilities and have followed his career, so when the opportunity arose to secure him, we didn’t hesitate.

“A lot of hard work has gone into planning for the January transfer window long before the month began, which is clear in how quickly we have been able to complete this move. I would like to thank everyone involved, particularly our owners, and I’m very much looking forward to working with Kieran again on the training pitch.”

Trippier helped Burnley secure promotion to the Premier League in 2014 and could well help secure Newcastle’s fight against relegation.
