Arsenal star Kieran Tierney has been handed a major boost in his return from injury - with the club revealing he'll be back in full training this month.

Tierney was understood to be out until at least October after his £25m move to the Gunners from Celtic on deadline day.

The left-back has been suffering with a double hernia issue that has sidelined him since last season.

It didn't hamper his record-breaking switch to London from the Hoops, though, and Arsenal fans are desperate to see their new man in action.

On the club's official website, they confirmed KT hopes to return to full training as early as the next few weeks.

The club said of his injury: "Groin. Continues to receive treatment and further assessments. 

"Progressing well and aiming to participate in full training in September."
