Tottenham Hotspur has confirmed the signing of right-back Kieran Trippier from Burnley on a five-year deal.

Trippier has joined Spurs for £3.5m, according to The Guardian, after starting all of the Clarets' Premier League games last season.

The 24-year-old will provide competition for Kyle Walker and DeAndre Yedlin at full-back and the player says he never even considered rejecting the offer from Tottenham.

"It's a great opportunity for myself. When I first heard that the club was interested, I didn't have to think twice," he told the club's website.

"It's such a big club and now I just can't wait to get started and show everyone what I can do. There are a few players here that I know and obviously I played them four times last year so I know quite a bit about Tottenham.

"The squad is unbelievable. There is so much quality [and] I can't wait to get started and be a part of that. I can't wait to start pre-season. I enjoyed my time last season.

"Whenever I get a chance, I want to do well for the other players, the staff and, of course, the fans. I'll take every opportunity I get with both hands and hopefully play my part for everyone at the club."

Despite signing a new contract in 2014, Trippier becomes the second significant exit from Burnley since their relegation from the Premier League, with Danny Ings having joined Liverpool.

The move also sees Tottenham complete their second signing of the summer, following fellow-defender Kevin Wimmer's arrival from Bundesliga side Cologne.

Chairman Daniel Levy has publicly pledged to back manager Mauricio Pochettino in the transfer market and confirmation of the club's second signing of the off-season, before the transfer window has even opened, suggests the Argentine boss will be supported.

Tottenham will play Europa League football for a fifth straight campaign after missing out on qualification for the Champions League but Levy will hope investment this summer will see the club return to Europe's premier club competition in time for its move into its new stadium.
