Kieran Tierney to Real Sociedad: Mikel Arteta provides update

Arsenal and Scotland left-back Kieran Tierney is set to join La Liga club Real Sociedad on a season-long loan deal, according to journalist Matteo Moretto of Relevo.

Ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League game against Fulham this weekend, Gunners head coach Mikel Arteta was asked about the Scotland international’s current situation.

“Again, there are things that are not resolved yet. When that is the matter, we will tell you,” Arteta said in his press conference on Friday.

Tierney, 26, has made 124 appearances for Arsenal and 38 appearances for Scotland but has lost his place in the Arsenal starting eleven under the Basque tactician.

The signing of Tierney, who could soon complete his medical at the club, may see full-back Diego Rico depart La Real before the end of the window. Several Primera clubs have shown interest in the player from Burgos.
