After a summer-long pursuit, Arsenal have finally confirmed the signing of Kieran Tierney from Celtic.
The Scotland international moves to the Emirates in a deal believed to be worth £25 million. The Bhoys had rejected two previous offers from the Gunners.
Tierney made his debut for his boyhood club in 2015 and has since made 170 appearances, scoring 8 goals and providing 37 assists.
The 22-year-old has spent most of the summer nursing injuries and wasn’t included in Celtic’s first game of the season against St Johnstone on Saturday.
He had an operation on a double hernia issue in May and has been battling osteitis pubis, which causes pain and discomfort in the groin and lower stomach. It’s expected he’ll need a few more weeks to get fit before being considered for first team action.
Welcome to the club, Kieran.
