KIERAN TRIPPIER has arrived at Newcastle's training ground to undergo a medical.
The England man is set to complete a £12million move from Atletico Madrid with the teams having agreed a fee on Tuesday night.
Trippier, 31, is set to become the club's highest earner on £100,000 a week.
He will complete his medical on Wednesday.
And the Toon will cough up £12m plus add-ons for his services.
The add-ons can reportedly rise to £3m and the Three Lions star will be paid the most of Newcastle's current squad.
Former Tottenham and Burnley man Tripper is set to become the Toon's first signing with their newly-gotten Saudi cash.
The Bury-born ace waved goodbye to Atletico's supporters after their 2-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.
