Tottenham are considering a move for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney, according to the Express.

Tierney was named as the Scottish Football Writers’ Association’s Young Player of the Year after another impressive campaign for Celtic.

The 20-year-old has been heavily linked with Manchester United in the past, while Sky Sports claims Bournemouth have made him their priority left-back target this summer.

Spotted by the BBC’s gossip column, the Express’ print edition ran a story on Thursday suggesting Spurs could test Celtic’s resolve with a £20 million bid.

There is a chance Tottenham will be in need of a new left-back for next season if Danny Rose departs as he is expected to.

Manchester United are believed to remain keen on Rose, but whether or not they pursue Tierney could obviously have an effect on Rose’s future.

Spurs have also been linked with Fulham sensation Ryan Sessegnon, although he has been playing in a more advanced role this term.

Both Tierney and Sessegnon are unproven in the Premier League, which could have a bearing on Tottenham’s decision to chase either one of them.



  1. Kieron Tierney is not going anywhere. In England you just think the big money is everything and all
    players will fall over themselves to go there.
    You have the richest league in Europe but certainly not the best quality as in the brand of football played.
    Your top teams are all managed by foreign coaches and loaded wit foreign players.
    An Englishman has never won the premiership and the development of youth is well below what it should be.
    Does anyone see anything wrong here. The money will dry up too but the damage is well and truly done. The working
    mans game is well and truly effed thenks to the pure greed.
