Report: Celtic plot £1.2m bid for Motherwell teenager David Turnbull

Celtic FC News: Celtic are aplotting £1.2million bid for Motherwell teenager David Turnbull.

The exciting Scottish prospect concluded the season with an amazing 19-goal tally.

However, the Scottish midfielder is tied with Wells until 2021.

The 19-year-old broke into the first-team at the latter half of the last season, making only 2 appearances.

But Turnbull proved to be a revelation at Fir Park this season and his string of brilliant displays led to his debut with Scotland’s U-21 team.

His exceptional performance was against Dundee, scoring a brace with a goal coming at the dying seconds of the injury time.

In addition, he also won the SWFA young player of the season 2018/19.

Primarily a central midfielder, Turnbull also can act as an attacking mid and a wide midfielder as well.

Celtic’s interest in Turnbull

Turnbull would be an excellent addition to the Hoops and can provide competition for Tom Rogic – the Australian midfielder who endured an injury-laden season. The 26-year-old struggled to find his feet due to the recurring injury woes.
