Kieran Trippier has said he found a better opportunity at Atletico Madrid quicker than expected.
“I am delighted to be here with a new challenge and new chapter for me and my family,” Trippier said.
“There is a lot of new faces but the lads make it easier for you when they include you in everything.
“I have slotted in better than expected to be honest, the lads have been brilliant with me, all the staff have made me feel so welcome.
“It is about learning the language now and that is my priority, getting involved with the lads and everything around it, embracing the culture.
“I am delighted to be part of this world-class team, with a world-class coach,” he said.
“When you are learning a defensive side there is no better coach to work under, and it is an area I want to improve on.”
