Villa place Trip­pier on list of tar­gets

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Total Football -

As­ton Villa have Eng­land full-back Kieran Trip­pier on their radar to bol­ster Dean Smith’s de­fence. Smith has made a right-back a trans­fer pri­or­ity and Trip­pier is an am­bi­tious tar­get if he can be per­suaded to re­turn to the Premier League af­ter one sea­son at Atletico Madrid. Trip­pier, 29, has two years left on his con­tract but, in the fi­nal month of the sea­son, Diego Sime­one started him in Atletico’s home games and used San­ti­ago Arias in away games.
