The fullback has joined from Atletico Madrid today.
Geremi wrote for the Daily Mail: "The goal is to avoid the drop and now that they have the financial muscle to bring in big players, I hope they can recruit the characters needed because the immediate objective is survival.
"Kieran Trippier is exactly the sort of player that Newcastle need to climb the table. The England star has played under Diego Simeone so has a fighter's mentality, and he also has experience of battling the drop with Burnley.
"I believe he will be a good signing but we will have to wait and see. Sometimes, an arrival can look good on paper but they may take time to settle.
"Trippier is the club's first signing under the new ownership and I have first-hand experience of what it is like to be part of a team at the dawn of an exciting new era."
