Celtic boss Neil Lennon has not ruled out making another move for Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull sometime in the future.
The player’s protracted move to the Hoops finally broke down when it emerged that the player needs a knee operation.
Reports claim that the injury could sideline the player for up to six months.
However, Lennon is still a fan of the player, and has admitted that the Hoops could bid for him sometime in the future.
“I’m disappointed for him”
“I’m disappointed for him, as, through no fault of his own, the deal has fallen through. Hopefully he makes a quick recovery and gets back to playing, but it won’t be with us” Lennon said, as reported by the Herald.
“Could we revisit it? Absolutely.”
Any move may depend on severity of knee injury
The chances of Celtic revisiting the deal may depend on how severe Turnbull’s knee injury is. Should he be out for six months, it could take him time to recapture the form that got Celtic interested in the first place.
However, should the injury not be as bad as is feared. Should the player can have another good season for Motherwell, the Hoops could make another bid for the player.
It is a pity for both Turnbull and Celtic that the deal hasn’t happened, but these things happen in football. Perhaps he will be a Celtic player eventually, only time will tell.
