Arsenal Sign Tierney From Celtic
Arsenal have finally secured the signing of 22-year-old Scotland international defender, Kieran Tierney who joins the Gunners on a five-year contract.
Celtic held on to the left-back all through the transfer window, dragging the deal till the last day of the English transfer window.
However, having now completed the £25 million ($30m) move to the Emirates Stadium on deadline day, Tierney will now compete with Sead Kolasinac for the left-back spot.
He becomes the fourth major Arsenal signing of the current transfer window with Unai Emery previously welcoming Nicolas Pepe, William Saliba and Gabriel Martinelli to the North London side.
“We’re delighted Kieran is joining us.” “He’s a very talented player who will continue to improve. He increases our options defensively and I look forward to him joining our group,” Emery said after completing the deal on Thursday.
Naija News understands Tierney joined Celtic at the age of seven, going on to make 170 appearances after making his first-team debut in 2015.
