Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on their second signing of the summer transfer window in the form of Burnley full-back Kieran Trippier.

He will join fellow summer signing Kevin Wimmer, who completed his move to White Hart Lane in May.

The Independent reported on 17 June that Spurs were closing in on the £3.5m ($5.5m) capture of former England Under-21 international Trippier, who started every Premier League game for the Clarets last season.

The ex-Manchester City defender and Barnsley loanee Trippier was a mainstay of the Burnley side which failed to survive relegation from the Premier League however his performances have won him a move to Tottenham, who will play in the Europa League next term.

"Deal for Trippier [to Tottenham] is active, he could have left last summer but wanted to stay," Burnley manager Sean Dyche said.

Trippier had two years remaining on his contract at Turf Moor having signed a new three-year deal in May 2014 but the 24-year-old's ambitions have seen him leave the club prior to their first campaign back in the Championship.

Kyle Walker and DeAndre Yedlin represent the competition for Trippier to force his way into the Tottenham first team under Mauricio Pochettino, though one of the aforementioned duo could yet be offloaded such are the club's resources in the position.

Walker suffered from an abdominal injury for much of the 2014-15 season and missed the first four months of the campaign before returning in December and going on to make 21 appearances in all competitions.

Yedlin meanwhile joined Tottenham from Seattle Sounders six months ahead of schedule in the January transfer window but has struggled to adapt to life in England and made just a single substitute appearance for his new club.

Despite missing out on qualification for the Champions League and the club's imminent move into a new stadium, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has pledged to back manager Pochettino in the summer transfer window in order to return the side to the top four.
