Burnley defender Kieran Trippier has passed his medical ahead of his proposed move to Tottenham Hotspur, according to Sky Sport.

The 24-year-old has been a transfer target for the north London club as their manager Mauricio Pochettino was keen on bringing him to White Hart Lane. They have already signed Kevin Wimmer from FC Cologne in May.

Trippier is set to be Tottenham's second signing of the transfer window as the former Southampton manager looks to bolster his squad for the next season, especially his back four. The right-back started in all the Premier League fixtures last season and was substituted only twice.

He has two years left on his contract at Turf Moor and is set to leave the club after Burley were relegated from the top flight competition in England to the Championship. Tottenham have already agreed a £3.5m ($5.5m) deal with Burnley for the transfer of Trippier to the Lane.

The Argentine manager already has the services of Kyle Walker and DeAndre Yedlin in the right-back position.

Injuries at the start of the last season kept Walker out of action. Meanwhile, Yedlin has struggled to make an impact since joining Tottenham from Seattle Sounders in the summer of 2014.

With the England international as the first choice player in the right-back position, Pochettino wants to bring in competition. Trippier is set to compete with Walker for a place in the starting XI next season.

Burnley already lost Danny Ings after the striker joined Liverpool earlier in June. With Trippier passing his medical at Tottenham, The Clarets will lose another talented player from their squad.

Meanwhile, Tottenham's star striker had a disappointing night after England U21 suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to Portugal in Euro U21 Championship in Czech Republic. Portuguese midfielder Joao Mario's second-half goal was the difference between the two sides.

The Young Lions have not won a match in the finals for the last six years. Gareth Southgate will be hoping his side could end their long wait when they face Sweden on 21 June.
