Celtic have turned down Arsenal’s advances for Kieran Tierney for the third and possibly final time, according to reports.
The 22-year-old has been the subject of three bids from Unai Emery’s side but it looks like a deal could be off, according to The Daily Record.
Their report claims that the unrealistic add-ons in Arsenal’s bids halted the deal, and that the Gunners are unlikely to return for a fourth time.

The £25m fee offered by Arsenal would’ve met the Hoops’ valuation of the player had it come in one big payment, but the offers included staggered payments and add-ons based on things like qualification for the Champions League, something which Sky Sports claim the Bhoys took issue with.
Of course, the Parkhead faithful are buzzing that it now appears as though their rising star will stay put. The Scotland international is only 22, but has racked up 170 games, eight goals, 37 assists and a whopping 11 trophies.
Here’s what the delighted fans had to stay about the latest news on Twitter…
Kieran knows where he wants to be so leave him alone ,he is one of us.

Glad he’s staying. It would have been the wrong move. Arsenal aren’t good enough.
