Newcastle fullback Trippier: Title challenge won't happen for years

Newcastle United fullback Kieran Trippier feels it will take five years to be a title challenger.

Newcastle's new owners are set to continue spending big in an effort to turn Eddie Howe's side into a footballing powerhouse in the future.

However, Trippier warned fans not to expect instant success.

Speaking to Chronicle Live, Trippier, who joined in January from Atletico Madrid, said: "You see the way Man City have done it and everyone is looking at Newcastle now.

"It's not going to happen overnight, it could take five years, it could take six years and everybody has to be patient but they are taking the right steps and that's all you can do.

"You have to take the right steps to move the club forward and that's what Newcastle are doing."
