Tottenham could make a £10 million move for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney in January, according to the Mirror, after the Scottish champions failed to qualify for the Champions League.

Spurs were expected to move for a left-back this summer with Danny Rose deemed likely to leave the club. Rose remains a Tottenham player, however, with less than two weeks until the European transfer window closes.

It has been well documented that Spurs failed to make a single summer signing. And if a report from the Mirror is to be believed, Tierney is yet another player the north Londoners were interested in until his valuation became apparent.

The Mirror claims Celtic slapped a £20 million on the left-back during the summer. But after their failure to qualify for the Champions League, they risk losing him for just £10 million in the January transfer window.

Tierney, 22, has previously been linked with Manchester United, as has Rose. But Luke Shaw appears to have won round Jose Mourinho this season, meaning Tottenham could have a free run at Tierney – although are Everton are also said to be interested.

  1. Celtic don’t need to sell anyone. We banked £30 mil from the last 2 champions league campaigns and finished even or in profit in most transfer windows. There’s no chance we sell off a youngster who the fans love and has been with us since he was 7 on the cheap. Stop leading the Spurs fans on. There’s more chance of them playing in thier new stadium this year than teirny leaving for £10m

    • If Kieran Tierney is ambitious, and keen to test himself playing in the best league in the world, he will move on to better himself. Celtic are a great club, but there are only two BIG clubs in Scotland, Celtic and Rangers and, with due respect, the standard of football is much lower than in the English Premier Division. A move could be in his best interest, from a personal development and financial point of view, and in turn make him a much better player for the Scottish national team. Food for thought!
