Mark Warburton has made it clear that Arsenal are getting an 'outstanding fullback' in Kieran Tierney and the Celtic man has 'more potential to come'.
The Scottish Sun have reported that Celtic have agreed a £25 million fee for Arsenal to sign Tierney, who will undergo a medical.
Queens Park Rangers manager Warburton would have seen Tierney up close and personal a number of times when he was managing at Ibrox.
Speaking to Sky Sports News (07/08/2019 at 09:30 pm), Warburton shared his honest thoughts on Tierney, who is now seemingly heading for the exit door.
“Top, top quality,” Warburton told Sky Sports. “Oustanding fullback. More potential to come still. I think it's a great purchase for Arsenal.”
Tierney has been touted to move to Arsenal for most of the summer as a deal is now seemingly in place on deadline day.
He will be a great signing for Arsenal, who have been crying out for defensive qualities for some time now.
As for Celtic, they are losing one of their top talents as he will be no doubt be very, very hard to replace. But the Scottish Premiership champions have some time to replace the Scotsman before 5pm's cut-off point.
