Celtic defender Kieran Tierney continues to be linked with a move to Leicester City this week, despite his insistence that there are nothing in the reports.
Borussia Dortmund are the latest side reported to be interested in a move for the 21-year-old yesterday, but The Scottish Sun again also report that Leicester City are keen on making a £25m move for the player as a potential replacement for Ben Chilwell.
The paper say Chilwell is attracting interest from cash rich clubs like Manchester City, paving the way for Tierney’s inclusion in the Foxes’ first-team.
The player himself was having none of the rumours at the weekend, telling The Daily Record: “There are going to be rumours like that. I’ve seen and heard them as well. I’ve been on the end of speculation for a few transfer windows so it’s nothing different for me. It doesn’t take my mind off Celtic. My pals ask me too and there will be links with a lot of Celtic players. It’s natural because it’s his old club but it’s nothing I know of.”
Clearly then his head has not been turned by Rodgers, as you’d expect from a committed Celtic player, but it appears that won’t stop the English Premier League side from tempting both the club and the defensive star with serious amounts of cash.
Most fans have their heart set on Tierney staying a the club until the push for ’10-in-a-row’ is finished at least and losing him this summer would be a bitter blow considering the amount of rebuilding we have to do already.
You’d have to imagine he knows that any move to Leicester is toxic too, so hopefully that rules them out, he wins more trophies with us and then one day, if he has to go, it’s to a big European team like Borussia Dortmund.
