“It is the right thing to do” Ex-Gunner delighted that Arsenal star is signing a new deal

Former Arsenal star, Kevin Campbell has revealed his delight at the news that the Gunners are close to tying Kieran Tierney down to a new long-term contract.

The Athletic reported last week that Arsenal is close to finalising a new deal for the former Celtic full-back.

The Gunners know how valuable he has proven to be for them since he moved to the Emirates.

They also know that with time, other clubs would start looking to sign him from them, especially if success continues to elude them.

They have now done the right thing and moved to tie him down to a new contract.

This news delighted Campbell and he says they have done the right things considering that rumours have circulated that Manchester City is looking at taking him away from the Emirates.

He told Football Insider: “There was some rumours flying around about Pep Guardiola, apparently he was interested in him, so just to disperse any doubt we are going to secure him.

“It is the right thing to do. He will have come down to the club on decent money but I am sure he wasn’t on a great contract.

“The way he has played, he deserves a new deal. He has been exceptional. He will be our left-back for a long time. It is good business from Arsenal.”

Tierney has been one of Arsenal’s most reliable players since he joined and their fans will share similar delight as Campbell.

  1. So refreshing seeing us doing things properly for once, instead constantly letting everyone get down to the last 12, or even worse, 6 months of their contracts.

    Huge if we can tie Tierney down.

  2. Good solid player when he’s fit ,let’s just hope we don’t tie him down just to see him sit half his contract out on the treatment table ,thus impacting us being able to sign a top LB rather than a cover LB which In turn could effect our results going forward not having our best 11 playing .
    But I suppose we have to be patient and to trust the process of our brilliant board and management .

    1. Well it’s taking time to clean up the complete mess from the regime that were in charge for so long. But the current regime have done a great job ditching the deadwood, although some think we didn’t have any deadwood, and we had a fantastic squad haha!

  3. TMJW- am I not mistaken in thinking it was THIS regime that bought Runnersan. Realised he was a dud. Quickly got in Matt Ryan. That was good management don’t you think.
    Cedric. 4 year deal. Aged 30. Same management now desperately looking to buy a LB. Good management that.
    Loans Ceballos for a second year then realises what most fans thought during his first term. He wasn’t good enough. Good management that . Left out Martinelli away at Villarreal. Played with no recognised striker. When he did bring him on the kid changed the game. Still too late but once again – good management.
    Want more instances????
    There’s plenty of them.
    Your problem PAL is attempting to always blame the previous regimes when your very own FCUK buddie has singlehandedly taken this club backwards. Too much my old son makes you blind. (So I’m told). Always think before you write. I’ve told you so many times before but you will always continue to embarrass yourself. And FFS- I hope you wear gloves

    1. All regimes make mistakes, you won’t find one that doesn’t, but overall, there’s been a huge improvement from what was happening under AW and IG.

      Ive never said Artefa hasn’t made mistakes, but he’s had to learn on the job whist simultaneously cleaning up the shambles he inherited from UE and AW.
