Former Burnley defender Kieran Trippier is poised to move back to the Premier League and head to Newcastle United after the Magpies agreed a £12m transfer fee.

The Atletico Madrid right-back spent four seasons at Turf Moor between 2011 and 2015, racking up 185 appearances and scoring seven goals in that time with the Clarets.

The 31-year-old won promotion to the top flight with the Clarets in 2014, before moving to Spurs the following year for a reported £3.5m fee.

But speculation has surrounded his future in Spain and it appears he is now set to return to England.

It is being widely reported that an initial fee of £12m with future add-ons has been agreed between the Magpies and Atleti.

The Guardian reports that personal terms have also been agreed with the player and a medical is being organised before he can be officially unveiled by the Premier League club.
