Having activated the A?3.5million release clause that was embedded into the contract of Kieran Trippier, Tottenham are all but set to make their second defensive signing after bringing down Kevin Wimmer earlier this summer.

The former England youth international was as decisive as Danny Ings for the Clarets last season and his sublime displays were rewarded with overhwheming interests from European pursuers in Liverpool, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur.

Release of Glen Johnson, potential departure of Nathaniel Clyne and injury concerns of Kyle Walker pushed the aforementioned teams to strike a deal for him and it is now being murmured that London would be his likely destination next season as he is believed to . have his medical in the next 24 hours.

Mauricio Pochettino would then have to decide whether to offload DeAndre Yedlin or let the trio of the American, Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier lock horns with each other for a spot in the starting eleven.

The 24-year-old has been an ever-present fixture in the Burnley line-ups for the past three seasons and may, thus, not be enticed by the prospect of warming the bench at White Hart Lane even though it is questioned whether he could kick on from his accolades last season.

The north London club are also looking to bring down yet another youngster in Marc Bartra from Barcelona to bolster their defensive options. Though their signings and targets can be tagged as unproven, it will not be a surprise, if they go on to impress the Tottenham supporters given their mammoth potential.
