Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur de­fender Kieran Trip­pier has signed a new five-year deal, the Pre­mier League club an­nounced yes­ter­day. The Eng­land full-back, who made his in­ter­na­tional de­but in the friendly de­feat to France in June, will re­main with Spurs un­til the sum­mer of 2022. “We are de­lighted to an­nounce that Kieran Trip­pier has signed a new con­tract with the club,” Tot­ten­ham said on their web­site. Spurs man­ager Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino signed Trip­pier from Burn­ley in June 2015, and the 26-year-old has made 41 ap­pear­ances over two sea­sons, estab­lish­ing him­self as the club’s first-choice right-back to­wards the end of last sea­son. Trip­pier’s new con­tract comes just days af­ter Tot­ten­ham sold an­other Eng­land right-back Kyle Walker to Manch­ester City for a fee that could re­port­edly rise to £54 mil­lion ($70 mil­lion, 61 mil­lion eu­ros). — AFP
