Celtic manager Neil Lennon has revealed the chat he had with left-back Kieran Tierney amidst the transfer rumours linking him with a move to Premier League giants Arsenal.

In a chat with Sun Sport, Neil Lennon revealed that Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has been left unsettled by the transfer rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal.

The Celtic manager went on to say that Arsenal will have to make a tempting offer for them to consider whether or not to sanction the sale of Kieran Tierney.

Neil Lennon said that his player is not for sale as things stand now.

Arsenal have made Kieran Tierney their top defensive target this summer as Gunner boss tries to bolster his defence ahead of the new season billed for the second week of August.

Kieran Tierney is a utility defender that can play as a centre back or as a left-back.

The 22-year-old was the subject of an opening bid of £15m from Arsenal which was turned down by Celtic before another bid of £18m was rejected.

Celtic are holding out for at least ¢25m before they can sanction his sale.

Arsenal are yet to make a single signing this season despite the fact that they have to close the gap on the leading teams from last season like Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.
