Blow for Arsenal as their loanee suffers a potential season-ending injury

Arsenal has been dealt a blow in their bid to permanently offload Kieran Tierney at the end of this season after he suffered another injury.

The defender is spending this season on loan at Real Sociedad, where he has enjoyed significant playing time.

However, the injury problems that characterised his time at Arsenal followed him to Spain, and he had already been sidelined before this season.

As clubs prepare for the end of the season and Sociedad considers whether they should make his move permanent, El Chiringuito reports that he has suffered an abductor problem.

He will be assessed to determine the severity of the problem, but it is very likely that Tierney will not be fit to play again this season.

Just Arsenal Opinion

This is a big blow to us because we expected him to return fit, making it easier for us to find a new club for the Scotsman.

He is no longer in our plans and this is the summer that we need to offload the former Celtic man.

If Tierney does not leave the club in the next transfer window, he risks not getting any game time in the 2024/2025 Premier League season.

  1. I have nothing but sympathy for Tierney who could have had a very successful career ahead of him. There we were, putting his name in the mix as a potential captain and then it went pear shaped. He is mid career in football (as a player) but will never really get much further if the injuries he suffers continue. They are not a few days here and there, but weeks at a time

    I think he was injured at the time of signing.

    1. Sure was injured at the time of signing, his attitude and discipline is so refreshing, such ashamed the kid is made from glass

  2. Yes. He was nicked when he first came to the Gunners. And, aside from not possessing the ability to slip into midfield from his fullback position for attacking, he was a great addition to the team as a mature, humble, hardworking player. He was one of the most popular of any player on the roster. Amused that he never wore long sleeve jerseys no matter how inclement the weather … he was impervious to the cold! Wish him the best. He deserves it.

  3. Maybe would’ve helped prevent Real’s narrow defeat to a whole sale changed Real Madrid last night. shame about his injury record, impatiently managed.
