Indeed, as first reported by TalkSport, the England international is supposedly set to sign for the Magpies in a deal expected to be worth £25m.
The article explains that personal terms – that will make Trippier the club’s highest-paid player – are close to being agreed upon, and only a final transfer fee needs to be settled.
