Kieran Tierney signs long-term Arsenal deal

Scottish left-back Kieran Tierney has committed his future to Arsenal, signing a new “long-term” deal with the North London club.

The 24-year-old was impressive in a disappointing campaign with the Gunners in 2020/21, providing a constant threat down the left flank, on his way to a goal and five assists in the Premier League from full-back.

Tierney has won legions of fans due to his commitment on the pitch and humble nature off it, having even arrived with his boots in a Tesco carrier bag for Arsenal’s FA Cup semi-final victory over Sheffield United last year.

“He is a player of huge ability”

Edu Gaspar, Arsenal’s technical director, spoke to Arsenal.com, stating that:

“We are so pleased to have agreed a new long-term deal with Kieran. Anyone who has seen him play will recognise very quickly that he is a player of huge ability, but I can tell you that he is also a player with a fantastic attitude and mentality. Kieran’s new contract is not just about the present and next season, it’s with a long-term vision and Kieran being an integral part of the future of the club.”

Mikel Arteta, whom Tierney described in an interview as “an absolute joy” to work with, added:

“This is great news for us today. As manager of the club, speaking on behalf of the coaching staff and the entire staff, it’s a pleasure to work with KT. His quality, energy, commitment and professionalism, not only on matchdays, but every day in training are always at such a high level. 

“KT gives us so much extra strength both defensively and offensively and it’s great to know that he’ll be with us for the long term. Since his move from Celtic, his work ethic and quality has ensured that he is already one of most exciting players in the Premier League and a hugely important part of our team, both on and off the pitch. 

“I know all the fans will join me, the players and staff in looking forward to seeing KT playing in an Arsenal shirt for a few more years!”

Arsenal fans will certainly be hoping that Tierney’s injury problems are now firmly behind him, and that he can continue to produce high class performances on a weekly basis.
