Left-back Tierney completes £25m move to Arsenal
Kieran Tierney has signed for Arsenal from Celtic on Deadline Day for a fee of £25m.
Arsenal agreed a fee with Celtic for the Scotland international left-back on Wednesday and have paid a record fee for a Scottish player.
Their initial £15m bid was rejected in June, as was a second £25m offer as it contained too many add-ons and was dependent on Arsenal qualifying for the Champions League, but their third was finally accepted.
The 22-year-old has been one of the Gunners’ top transfer targets all summer and will wear the No 3 shirt at the Emirates.
Tierney told the club’s official website: “It feels great. I’m delighted to be here. Obviously I’m injured now, but I’m just looking forward to getting back on the pitch, training and getting involved with the squad.
