Atletico Madrid to be hotter next season.  Tottenham midfielder Kieran Trippier is expected to join La Liga team Atletico Madrid. He will join his former EPL friend from Chelsea Diego Costa.

Kieran Trippier has revealed "behind the scenes" issues caused him to leave Tottenham for Atletico Madrid.

Trippier signed a three-year deal with Atletico earlier this month after joining for a fee in the region of £22m.

The right-back starred as England reached the semi-finals at the 2018 World Cup, but faced criticism for his performances at Spurs the following campaign.

"I think it was time for me to change and move on," Trippier said.

"I don't necessarily mean that I needed to move on, but things happened behind the scenes at Tottenham, which I don't really want to go into, but I needed to move on from that."

Trippier featured as Atletico thrashed Real Madrid 7-3 in a pre-season friendly on Friday night, with former Chelsea striker Diego Costa grabbing the headlines with a hat-trick and red card.
