Kieran Trippier has been praised by many Newcastle fans after he was spotted chatting to new signing Sandro Tonali.

Italian midfielder Tonali completed his move to Newcastle from Serie A giants AC Milan on Monday.

The 23-year-old joins the Magpies in a deal worth a reported fee of €70 million.

Trippier was heard telling Tonali about the difficulties of moving to a new country, something the Englishman experienced when he joined Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid.

Trippier said: “If you need any help, I’m always here. Just to help you settle, I know how hard it is to move to a different country so I’m here if you any help, about the city, the team, or anything, I’m here.

“I want to make you feel welcome.”
