MIKEL ARTETA has provided a transfer update on former Celtic star Kieran Tierney.

The Scotland international had been linked with a move away from the Emirates this summer, with Leicester a possible destination.

But Arteta insists Tierney is key for the Gunners moving forward and is adamant that he will be going nowhere.

Speaking ahead of yesterday's Premier League defeat against Tottenham, he said: “He’s not going anywhere.

“I really like him.

“I’m very impressed him. Everybody loves him at the club and he earns that every single day with the way he treats people, the way he works and the energy he brings to the place.

“And then with his performances, I am delighted. He has adapted really well, he is a player that gives you everything in every session and every game. And the quality he has added as well.

“He’s still so young, he has things to improve obviously but he’s been a great addition to the team.”
