Tottenham Transfer Gossip
The 24-year-old impressed last season despite the Clarets being relegated back the Championship, and Spurs are moving quickly to bring him on board and have opened talks with the player.
Spurs have apparently seen off the likes of Liverpool and Aston Villa in the hunt for his services, and after opening negotiations he is expected at White Heart Lane for a medical at some point in the next 72 hours.
Mauricio Pochettino is said to have been impressed with his performances and is looking to wrap up a quick deal for the former England under-21 international as he has endured a number of injury problems in the position over the course of the campaign.
Having joined from Manchester City in 2011, Trippier has gone on to make 185 appearances, scoring six goals for Burnley.
