He said: "I want to stay in England but what can you do?

"I'll see what happens and what the club wants, most importantly."

Trippier, who is contracted to Spurs until 2022, made 38 appearances this season as they finished fourth in the Premier League and reached the Champions League final.

"I go home now, spend time with my family, just recover after a long, difficult season. Everybody's got a decision to make.

"Obviously this club has been very good for me over the last few years but I'll enjoy my summer, come back in pre-season and that's when I'll sit down with the manager and have a talk about my future.

"I see a lot of speculation about me not being here. I give everything, 100% every game, win lose or draw. So we'll see what happens in pre-season."
