Everton have cooled their interest in Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney, according to the Scottish Sun.
The English Premier League side were the leading contenders to prize the Scottish internationalist from Parkhead this summer as talk of a bid intensified over the past week.
However, they’ve now decided against making an offer, believing £25million to be too much for a Ladbrokes Premiership player.
Manager Marco Silva and the Everton recruitment staff will now turn their attentions elsewhere.
The Toffees have also been linked with a move for Tottenham full-back Danny Rose.
