    I understand that KT was once a part of our youth system, and we sold him to Burnley for an undisclosed fee. Does anyone have any insight into the circumstances when the transfer fee is undisclosed?

    Can't find my posts on the matter about the time him and Mee were sold by Marwood.
    I say sold more like given away, people were saying at the time Burnley didn't have a lot of money even though they had parachute payments from the premier league at the time...
    Didn't Trippier go on record saying he will prove City wrong for selling him one time?https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/f...Manchester-City-they-were-wrong-to-let-him-go

    Well he sure has hasn't he...

    Found this though..

    I'm not sure how people don't remember this?

    He was in a pecking order behind Zaba and Richards,who at the time were considered amongst the best right backs in the league.Having had a taste of 1st team football on loan,he wanted more.......You can work the rest out for yourself.

    Good to see City links all over the World Cup. Guidetti for Sweden, Boyata with Belgium, Corluka of Croatia, and the list goes on and on. I claim any City link I can. One that stands out is Bury-born Keirin Trippier. During his time at City, Micah Richards was linked with Chelsea and Ar$enil, as Zaba was talked about heading to Barca. Coupled with the fact Trippier still was developing physically, he was quite far down. We had a clutch of first teamers that could play RB as an unnatural position. He had little chance. Fair play to him in his evolution at Spurs. His football formation years also featured clubs like Burnley and Barnsley. He knows the game well enough to play for many years. He has appeared for England U18s, England U19s, England U20s, England U21s, and now the senior England squad. He is capable of joining the England Masters team one day and could well reach national legendary status with the chance before him now. I wonder what the away friendly game for City, against Barcelona did for his vision. Did it inspire? That came a season after lifting the FA Youth Cup with City. Good luck to him with England and in his future of football.

    I wouldn't say that he has proven City wrong at all. He left City over 6 years ago and only really became a regular starter for a big club last season (and still only made 24 appearances). If he had stayed at City he would have been, at best, a back up and probably wouldn't really have developed as much with us as he wouldn't have been playing regularly. He would be second choice behind Walker. So it was best for all that he moved on when he did.

    He has, however, proven that he's a very good right back.

    At the time he looked like he'd just be a steady high Championship/low Prem player, so we sold him to a club at that level. He got promoted with Burnley but he might very well not have and still just be playing for them or just a low Prem club. These things sometimes just happen by chance.
