The Hoops boss said: ‘It’s as you were really. I’ve had no information other than there was two bids that came in from Arsenal that were rejected.

”There has been no further inroads into that really. Our valuation of Kieran wasn’t met and it’s as simple as that.

”You will see other transfers not going through because valuations haven’t been met. It’s not a case of Arsenal being disrespectful.

”They put a bid in that they valued the player at. They came back again and obviously see Kieran as a very good player, as we do. But on a long-term contract we’re in a very strong position when it comes to Kieran.’
