Tue 04 January 2022 | 21:03

Newcastle United and Atletico Madrid have reached an agreement over the signing of the England international on a deal of around £12m as well as some add-ons.

Kieran Trippier

is going to join

Newcastle United

and will undergo his medical in Tyneside as he has agreed on personal terms.

Atletico Madrid

wanted the 31-year-old to remain put, but the player had set his heart on a return to England.

Trippier will be Newcastle’s first signing after the new owners took over the club. Eddie Howe, the club manager, worked with the defender previously when he was coaching Burnley, acquiring his services from Manchester City in 2012 as he impressed on his loan spell at Turf Moor.

The Magpies owners want to add three more players to their squad in the January transfer window as they are keen on staying in the

Premier League

. They are currently sitting second-bottom in the table after 19 matches, two points away from safety.
