Kieran Trippier has signed a new contract at Newcastle United, committing to the club until the summer of 2025.
The England international has played a starring role in Newcastle’s climb up the Premier League table in the last 12 months after arriving at the club as the first signing under the new owners.
Trippier has been crucial at both ends for Newcastle, helping Eddie Howe’s side keep 16 clean sheets this season while also registering six assists.
Trippier said: “I’m absolutely delighted that I’ve extended my contract here. I’ve got a lot of thank yous to make to the manager, owners, fans and my teammates.
“When I first arrived here, they made me feel so welcome and I want to help the club achieve great things. It’s a positive moment for us players in the club and there’s no place I’d rather be.”
Head coach Howe added: “It’s a fitting reward for the season he’s had. He’s been outstanding both on and off the pitch, showing real leadership at a difficult moment when he first arrived, and now he’s excelled in a team that’s doing well.
“I can’t praise him enough for everything he’s given the club.”
