Everton weigh up move for Celtic star as Baines replacement

  Everton weigh up move for Celtic star as Baines replacement Everton are reportedly weighing up a move for Kieran Tierney with a view to make the Scottish left-back Leighton Baines’ replacement, according to the Mirror. Tierney has impressed many in Scotland with his performances, with the defender helping Celtic to many successes north of the border. Celtic signed the youngster to a new deal back in October, but Everton are reportedly keen to test the Scottish Champion’s resolve with a bid for one of their prized assets. Leighton Baines has been a long-term Everton stalwart, signing for the Toffees in 2007 from Wigan. However, Baines has had problems with injuries and is not getting any younger, meaning Everton are now looking for fresh blood at left back. Tierney would fit this bill, although Everton could face some competition for the defender, with Manchester United and Spurs also interested in bringing Tierney to the Premier League. Everton views Tierney as a long-term successor to Baines, who is now 33 years old.

Everton have decided against making a move for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney, after learning of Celtic’s asking price.

Alasdair Lamont of the BBC today confirmed this latest breakthrough on Twitter.

This news will be music to the ears of Celtic fans who were desperate to hold on to their young prodigy.

The 21-year-old has been a supporter of the club for his whole life and joined Celtic at the age of just seven.

According to earlier reports, it had seemed a £25 million switch down south was becoming more and more likely but whilst no move was fully agreed, it all now seems dead in the water.

Tierney featured yesterday for Celtic in the 7-0 hammering of Shamrock Rovers and will be a crucial player when the Champions League Qualifiers kick off next week.
