Tottenham will offer defender Kieran Trippier a new long-term deal, according to a report.
The Telegraph claim that the 26-year-old is set for a new improved deal with Spurs after impressing last season.
It is understood that the right-back is set to receive the offer of a five-year contract, despite still having three years remaining on his existing deal.
The report details that Trippier’s new contract is expected to be agreed before Kyle Walker’s move to Manchester City is sanctioned.
Spurs are looking to retrieve £50million for Walker’s sale this summer and the report explains that Trippier is set to replace him as the number one full-back option next season.
Trippier overtook his teammate in the pecking order for the right-back position at the back-end of last season and appears to be considered the replacement under Mauricio Pochettino.
The former Burnley man recently made his England debut in an international friendly with France and has enjoyed a huge rise in the past 12 months.
He was considered to be the back-up option to Walker when he first arrived at White Hart Lane, but has now managed to edge past him and has proved his qualities on the pitch.
Trippier made just 22 appearances across all competitions last season and his contribution going forward made him a lethal weapon.
The attack minded right-back managed to chip in with seven assists for Spurs and become renowned for his cross ability, including two identical inch-perfect crosses on the final day 7-1 victory over Hull.
