It looks like we’ll have to wait until Friday morning for an announcement confirming Kieran Trippier’s official arrival.
Sky Sports duo Keith Downie and Pete Graves both insist that there is nothing for Newcastle United fans to worry about, stating that the 31-year-old will be unveiled in the morning when the final paperwork and formalities are all sorted out.
We agreed a £12m fee with Atletico Madrid for the England international on Wednesday and saw the player pictured arriving at Newcastle airport and the club’s Benton training base just yesterday.
Trippier has since been seen leaving his hotel on Tyneside and spotted on the pitch at St James’ Park, however it seems Toon fans refreshing Twitter all night will now have to wait until tomorrow morning!
Here’s what North-East reporters Keith Downie and Pete Graves have both had to say in the last few moments, with the latter stating that the delay has come from Atletico’s side, as everything is done at Newcastle’s end:
So, nothing to worry about and ‘everything okay’, just a slight delay in proceedings.
Let’s hope it’s actually because we’re planning to unveil a double signing!!
