Kieran Trippier named Burnley's player of the year

Burnley full-back Kieran Trippier

Burnley manager Eddie Howe has predicted a bright future for young full-back Kieran Trippier, who has been named the club's player of the year.

The 21-year-old started all 46 games of the Championship campaign for the Clarets, scoring three goals.

Howe told BBC Radio Lancashire: "He's a great prospect and a terrific talent.

"He's had an outstanding season. You look at his performances now, compared to when he first came in, and there's been a big improvement."

Trippier joined Burnley last summer on an initial season-long loan from Manchester City and made the move permanent in January.

But he was unable to help the club into the race for a play-off spot, as Howe's men finished 13th in the Championship table.
