Tierney decides to stay at Arsenal

Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney has made the decision to continue with the club next season instead of moving elsewhere.

The Scot played second fiddle to Oleksandr Zinchenko last term, and made just six league starts from the left-back position.

Despite this, he is happy to fight for his future at Arsenal, and Fichajes claim that he has opted to stay for the coming season.

The 26-year-old is currently out of contention for a starting spot. He has featured off the bench in the pre-season matches.

Jakub Kiwior was preferred to start from left-back for the first two games before being replaced by Takehiro Tomiyasu versus Manchester United.

Against Barcelona yesterday, it was Jurrien Timber's turn to start in the role, but Tierney provided an assist off the bench.

With Zinchenko currently out with a muscle injury, Tierney may have the chance to redeem himself in the coming weeks.

He will be hoping to start in the Emirates Cup game against Monaco before facing Manchester City in the Community Shield.
