Graeme Souness believes Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier would command a place in the Manchester United side.

The England international has struggled to secure regular first-team football in Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team in the 2016-17 season.

Trippier is Tottenham’s second-choice right-back given the scintillating form of his England colleague Kyle Walker.

The former Sheffield defender has been linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer, which would present Trippier with the chance to make the right-back spot his own at White Hart Lane.

Trippier laid on an assist for Son Heung-min in Tottenham’s 4-0 win against Watford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Former Spurs man Souness believes Trippier is among the Premier League’s best right-backs, adding that the former Burnley man would secure a place in the Manchester City or Manchester United starting line-ups.

“Kieran Trippier would definitely get in the Manchester United or Manchester City teams. He is outstanding qualities. Trippier has as much quality going forward as Premier League full-back right now,” Souness told Sky Sports.

Trippier moved to Tottenham from Burnley in the 2015 summer transfer window.

The Tottenham defender has made three assists in seven appearances in the Premier League this term.
