Newcastle closing on deal for Atletico Madrid fullback Kieran Trippier

Newcastle are closing on a deal for Atletico Madrid fullback Kieran Trippier.

The Manchester Evening News says Newcastle are in advanced negotiations to sign one-time Manchester United target Trippier.

Sources say a deal is close but discussions are more complex as provisions are thrashed out amid the possibility Newcastle get relegated.

United have not shown any more interest in Trippier, 31, after they attempted to sign him in the summer. Diogo Dalot has started in four of the last five Premier League games and earned plaudits for his performances.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka's subdued second season convinced United to pursue Trippier in the summer when Dalot was coveted by AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund.

United kept Dalot as Atletico outpriced them for a move for Trippier, who started for England in the European Championship final against Italy.

Roma had expressed interest in Dalot last month but his regular playing time heading into January leaves United with two first-team-ready right-backs.
