New Arsenal (opens in new tab) signing Kieran Tierney has already broken the club's vertical jump record despite carrying an injury, write The Sun (opens in new tab).

After weeks of speculation the Scotland international finally completed a £25m move to the Emirates Stadium on transfer deadline day.

And the former Celtic man has already made an impression in north London after beating Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's standing jump record.

Tierney recorded a height of 55cm, 1cm more than his Gabonese team-mate.

The Scot's feat was all the more impressive given that he is set to miss the start of the season after undergoing a double hernia operation.
