Official: Tierney’s Departure from Arsenal Confirmed, Joins Real Sociedad on Temporary Basis
La Liga club Real Sociedad has officially welcomed Kieran Tierney, a defender from Arsenal, who will be joining them on loan for the current season. Tierney, who is a Scottish international, made the decision to boost Real Sociedad’s defensive lineup after finding himself lower in the hierarchy at Arsenal.
Real Sociedad is actively working towards creating a competitive team as they aim to make their mark in La Liga and perform well in the Champions League. To strengthen their squad, they recently announced the signing of left-back Kieran Tierney from Arsenal on loan for the 2023-24 season.
One of the reasons Tierney was drawn to Real Sociedad is the opportunity to play in the top European competition this season under the guidance of coach Imanol Alguacil. Given his recent decline in playing time under Mikel Arteta at Arsenal, Tierney sees this move as a chance to compete for a starting position in La Liga.
However, it’s worth noting that the loan agreement does not include an option for Real Sociedad to purchase Tierney permanently. Therefore, it is expected that he will return to Arsenal after his loan spell in Spain concludes.
