Former Celtic Star linked with summer move to Eddie Howe’s Newcastle Utd

Latest reports suggest that Newcastle United has shown interest in  Kieran Tierney, as he could be set for a summer exit from Arsenal. The addition of Oleksandr Zinchenko to the Arsenal squad at the beginning of this season saw  the former Celtic left-back struggle to get much game-time with Mikel Arteta as Tierney has failed to reclaim his spot in the starting XI after being a regular starter in previous campaigns.

Tierney joined the London club in the Summer of 2019 for a £25m transfer fee and was an instant success. However, a knee injury last season forced the full-back to undergo surgery and keep him out of the squad, which made room for the arrival of Oleksandr Zinchenko.

With his position more or less secured by the Ukrainian international, Tierney may look for a move to another club, and according to Football Insider, there is interest.

Football insider report that Newcastle, who currently sit 4th in the Premier League, has shown interest in the Scottish player, as well as several Italian clubs.

“It’s not been difficult to stay in touch, but the hardest part is you don’t see each other every day. But there will be a phone call every single day, without question.”

Tierney spoke to ArsenalTV about how it is to live so far from home.  “Whether it’s five minutes driving to and from training, whether it’s Facetime when I’m just chilling in the house or I usually phone my mum when I’m taking the dog out for a walk.  So it’s every day, religiously.

“We very rarely talk about football. She might ask how training was today but nothing much more than that. Unless I want to talk about something specific then we do, but it’s more just day-to-day stuff, what I’m up to, what I’m having for dinner that night, things like that.”

And Newcastle is obviously nearer to home than London for the former Celtic Star.

  1. Keep heading north after Newcastle, Kieran, and veer slightly west, and you will find the place that wants you back. Ignore your agent that caused all the trouble in the first place. Home is waiting for you.
