Arsenal have officially announced that Kieran Tierney has signed a new ‘long-term’ contract with the Gunners, the left-back joined the North London outfit in the summer of 2019.
Per BBC Sport, Tierney’s wages when he arrived from Scotland were £75,000-a-week and the Athletic claim that the ace has landed himself a raise to £110,000-a-week.
Tierney has dealt with constant injury troubles whilst at Arsenal, but the Scotsman has looked quality whenever he’s been called upon and featured more prominently this season than his debut campaign.
Tierney showed himself to be one of the Premier League’s best in his position this past season, the ace has also become an instant fan favourite at the Emirates due to his unmatched passion and work-rate.
It’s certainly smart for the Gunners to tie Tierney down to a longer deal, though some may be slightly aggrieved by the fact that the star has been handed a raise when the side look no closer to returning to the Champions League after a dreary eighth-placed finish under Mikel Arteta.
