Celtic fans are excited about the potential signing of David Turnbull after the club agreed a fee with Motherwell for his transfer.
The North Lanarkshire club announced on Wednesday evening that the player has been given permission to speak with the Hoops after a record bid for a ‘Well player was accepted.
The Daily Mail later reported the value of the potential transfer is in the region of £2.8m.
Leigh Griffiths is ready and raring to go for Celtic next season. One fan discusses what we can expect from him in the video below…
It now seems very likely he will be a Celtic midfielder ahead of the club’s pre-season trip to Austria later this month, as the club gear up for important UEFA Champions League qualifiers that start in July.
Turnbull was a stand-out in the Scottish Premiership last term, scoring 15 goals and assisting six times in 30 league appearances.
He’ll add a bit of attacking flair to the central area in the Hoops side, competing with players such as Ryan Christie and Tom Rogic for a starting spot.
Celtic supporters are eager to see him arrive at Celtic Park, taking to Twitter this week to share their thoughts on the deal…

A positive development. Hope it’s the first of many signings this summer.

Pleased to see there was a quick conclusion to this deal, hopefully more of the same in the coming weeks.
