Tottenham Sign Kieran Trippier to 5-Year Deal

It was always only a matter of time until Premier League clubs raided the relegated teams, and Burnley have now lost two of their best players from last season, with Trippier following Danny Ings back to top-flight action.

It's always a shame when the best fantasy players of a given season are no longer available for selection heading into the beginning of the next campaign, whether through a move away from England, retirement, or relegation to the Championship.

When Burnley were relegated at the end of the 2014-2015 season, fantasy managers had one of the league's best fantasy performers taken away from them, with 24 year-old right back Kieran Trippier dropping down to the second flight with his club.

Of course, it was to be expected that the suitors for his signature would be knocking at the door quickly, and with news today that Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a  £3.5m deal to bring Trippier to White Hart Lane, we can rest assured for the rest of the summer knowing one of the top fantasy prospects will be available for selection in our teams next season.

Just what this signing means for Kyle Walker and DeAndre Yedlin is another matter, which could mean further transfer news at the fullback position for Spurs as the summer rolls on.

What are your thoughts on the move? Is Trippier a good fit for Spurs? What will become of Walker and Yedlin?
