Report: Celtic To Land £3.5m Playmaker “This Week” Despite Newcastle Interest

Reports in Scotland suggest that Celtic are set to add Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull to their squad this week despite interest from the Premier League (via The Scottish Sun).

With the season underway but the transfer window still open for months to come, the pressure is on Neil Lennon and Celtic to finalise their player recruitment.

A number of Hoops stars have been linked with exits from Celtic Park including the £30 million-rated Aston Villa target Odsonne Edouard and midfielder Tom Rogic.

But there are also incomings expected like the Motherwell playmaker David Turnbull who could well replace the Australian.

The 21-year-old was set to join the Hoops last year but the deal collapsed after the Scottish champions flagged up a knee problem in the medical.

But now, Neil Lennon and Celtic look set to return for the player they have scouted frequently over the last few years.

Celtic face competition for Scotland’s 2019 Young Player of the Year from clubs in England including Newcastle United and a host of Championship sides.

The Scottish Sun claim that a £3 million offer from Celtic will be enough to secure Turnbull and that they could complete the deal as soon as this week.

It will be a good acquisition for Celtic if they manage to get the deal for David Turnbull over the line. Last season’s young player of the year has impressed at Fir Park and £3 million seems like a good piece of business.
