They don't have huge money to pay on transfers, they only signed Odsonne Edouard from PSG as they had the kick back from VVD going to Liverpool, an extra £25m could buy them some very good players at that level. .
Fundamentally, looking at KTs very recent BBC Scotland interview, I think the lad still wants to stay. I'm not saying he is going to do a Francesco Totti, but he is still in love with the club
. If we where going to get him at a knockdown price he'd have to have been unhappy.
As for Eduoard, that was a coup for Celtic and your more or less correct @Gash
but they also got him because PSG shit themselves because of FFP (£54m in the red) so where resorting to selling some of there top youth prospects for knockdown prices which luckily matched (as you said) the VVD ££££.
I honestly cannot thanotherntother LB though who we can sign instead of KT. Particularly as he is so similar to Baines. I just don't fancy Danny Rose at all.
The biggest problem for Everton is the football world and even ex Celtic players (Scott McDonald) who are respected at the club feel KT is too good to go to Everton and should stay another few years. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44669337
"I think he might possibly just stay on for even another year, maybe two more," McDonald told BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound.
"If they're offering the amounts of money that can be offered down in England then it would be a huge temptation but we've seen in the past how much he loves the football club and he's still only young.
"If he holds out another year or two, I think opportunities do open up. Someone like Man United, that has been touted with the struggles that they have found at left-back.
"Certainly, if they were the ones tabling the bid, you would jump. I think you would have to jump to go to a Manchester United or the likes of them in the Champions League competitions. Everton, outside the top six clubs, you would argue are probably the next one."
Free agent McDonald, 34, believes it will be left up to the player if an acceptable bid arrives.
"It really depends on Kieran Tierney himself for me at this point," said the striker, who scored 64 goals in 128 Celtic appearances between 2007 and 2010.
