Atletico Madrid have agreed a fee with Tottenham to sign England defender Kieran Trippier while Danny Rose could also be nearing an exit from the Champions League finalists.

Trippier's move was confirmed last night, with Atletico announcing the right-back had signed a three-year deal.

"Atletico Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement over the transfer of Kieran Trippier. The 28-year-old has signed a contract for the next three seasons," a statement on their official website read.

The 28-year-old has spent the last four years at Tottenham and started their Champions League final defeat to Liverpool in the final game of last season.

The Spanish capital now looks set to become his new home, with Atleti seeking a new right-back having released the experienced Juanfran.

Some reports suggested Spurs could sign striker Angel Correa as part of the deal but it now appears Trippier will leave in a cash-only transfer.

Fellow England defender Rose also appears set to move. The club confirmed yesterday that the 29-year-old was working on a potential exit.
