Tottenham Target Signs A Long-term Deal But Pochettino Has Lot Of Other Options

Kieran Tierney

Tottenham Hotspur’s long-term target Kieran Tierney signed a new long-term contract with his current club Celtic, raising doubts over a future move to the White Hart Lane.

The young left-back who is coveted by top clubs across Europe has penned a new six-year contract to stay with his boyhood club, according to HITC. This has put to bed all those rumours talking about an imminent move for Tierney.

The 20-year-old joined the Bhoys as a 7-year-old, having supported Celtic as a boy. He rose to stardom at the club after becoming a regular in the 2015-16 season. He has gradually become an irreplaceable part of the Celtic’s first-team under Brendan Rodgers, who is delighted that the club have secured the future of their best player.

What does this mean to Tottenham? Spurs were admirers of Tierney for a long time and have been scouting the player for the past couple of seasons. Mauricio Pochettino likes to sign young players with huge potential and Tierney fits the bill perfectly.

The Argentine is eyeing a new left-back although he is well stocked in the area. Ben Davies has been a revelation on the left this season, after getting his chance in the first-team following Danny Rose’s injury. Rose has returned to the first-team action although there are doubts over his future at the club.

With Kierney signing a new long-term contract, he could be off our radar. Pochettino, though, still has a couple of options up his sleeve – Shaw of United and Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham.

Shaw is frozen at United under Jose Mourinho for reasons best known to him, which has frustrated the England international. He believes that working with Pochettino once again, will revive his fortunes.

Sessegnon is another exciting prospect, as the 17-year-old wing back fits Pochettino’s requirements perfectly due to his pace and attacking ability.

Although a lot will depend on Rose’s future on how Tottenham will proceed with their options, the contract extension of Tierney is not a devastating blow. We still have some potential youngsters on the radar!
