Arsenal announce the £25m signing of Kieran Tierney from Celtic

Arsenal complete the £25m signing of Kieran Tierney from Celtic, as the left-back pens a five-year deal at the Emirates.

The Gunners have been chasing Tierney’s signature all summer and saw two bids rejected before accepting Celtic’s valuation on Wednesday.

Tierney secure a medical checkup at the club’s London Colney training ground on Thursday before penning the deal few hours before the transfer deadline.

Kieran Tierney stats

Age: 22

Position: Left-back

Apps: 171

Goals: 8

Assists: 37

Yellow cards: 10

Red cards: 0

The 22-year-old is regarded as one of Britain’s young brightest talents having made his Celtic debut as a 17-year-old back in April 2015.

He feature in 171 appearances for the reigning Scottish champions, scoring eight goals and making 37 assists.

His arrival at the Emirates is a big boost to an Arsenal defense that have conceded 51 goals in the League last season but he is unlikely to feature in their opening day clash against Newcastle on Sunday.
