Kieran Tierney has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal, the Premier League club has confirmed.
The 24-year-old left-back has been a revelation since joining from Celtic in the summer of 2019 and it’s understood he will now earn around £110,000 per week.
The Athletic reports the negotiations have been in the works for a while but have been finalised now Tierney and Scotland’s participation at Euro 2020 has ended.
“This is great news for us today,” Gunners boss Mikel Arteta said.
“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.”
The player was also delighted to commit his future to the north London club and is certainly feeling the support from Gooners.
He said: “Obviously the love that I had at Celtic, I thought you can’t replicate that anywhere but from day one the Arsenal fans have shown me so much love.”
