Everton fans criticise club for ending Tierney pursuit

Everton fans have been saying for the better part of a year that the club need to invest in a new left-back.

At the age of 33, Leighton Baines is reaching the closing stages of his career, and last season, the supporters were not impressed by stand-in Cuco Martina, who is predominantly right-footed.

Amid reports that Baines could be on his way out of Goodison Park, attention seemed to turn to Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.

However, according to the Liverpool Echo on Sunday, Everton have now decided to end their pursuit of the 21-year-old.

The Merseyside outfit were in talks with the Scottish champions regarding a deal, but they felt that a £25m price tag was too much for the youngster, who has already won three titles in his career.

The report claims that Everton will now return to their list of alternatives and look to bring in another face.

In response to the reports, some supporters have been left disappointed.
