The former Manchester City trainee has spent the past three years with the Clarets, but has now put pen-to-paper on a five-year-deal at White Heart Lane.

Despite being unable to help Burnley avoid relegation back to the Championship, Trippier impressed as he played in all 38 games.

He becomes the second high profile exit from Turf Moor this month, following Danny Ings’ departure to Liverpool.

And he spoke of his delight at being able to link up with Mauricio Pochettino’s men and have another crack at Premier League success.

“When I first heard the club was interested I didn’t have to think twice,” Trippier said.

“It’s such a big club and now I just can’t wait to get started and show everyone what I can do.

“I’ll take every opportunity I get with both hands and hopefully play my part for everyone at the Club.”

However, his arrival could spell the end of the line for one of Spurs’ other options at right-back. Presently Kyle Walker, Eric Dier, Vlad Chiriches and DeAndre Yedlin can all slot into the position.
