Newcastle defender Kieran Trippier drops massive hint about his future amid transfer speculation

Kieran Trippier didn't have the best of times for Newcastle United in the last campaign picking up several injuries and suffering with poor form in several games.

The £12million signing from Atletico Madrid has been a revelation since he joined Newcastle and was an instrumental figure in the club's rise under Eddie Howe, but if we're being honest, he will probably want to forget last season.

Tripps missed 10 Premier League games last season and in the ones he did play, we rarely saw him at his best, something which the player himself has admitted after a disastrous December.

However, Trippier is now gearing up to represent England at Euro 2024 and will lead the Three Lions out as captain at St James' Park tonight as they take on Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Bayern Munich wanted to sign Trippier in January

There was intense speculation in January that Bayern Munich were trying to lure Trippier away from Newcastle, and while that didn't happen, it has led to speculation regarding his long-term future and possible summer departure.

There's no escaping the fact that Trippier isn't getting any younger and has perhaps lost a step over the past 12 months, but he still remains a hugely influential figure, and there's no arguing with his assist numbers last season.

Speaking to inews, Newcastle's on-field skipper has dropped a huge hint about his future when talking about not getting European football this season.


Trippier is already looking forward to next season at Newcastle

“It’s definitely a blow, of course you wanted to finish in Europe. It’s one of those things.

“United won the FA Cup, and obviously that took us out of Europe. There’s no time to dwell on it though.

“We have to go again next season, and with one game a week, with the players we’ve got, that’s exciting.

“We can be on the grass more because with three games a week, you can’t really do that. It’s something the club can learn from.”
