At least one Celtic player could be heading to Motherwell as part of the deal that brings David Turnbull to Celtic Park, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun is reporting that the Steelmen are keen to being either Mikey Johnston or Lewis Morgan to Fir Park on loan as part of the deal.
The Hoops have agreed a fee of £3 million pound with Motherwell for the midfielder, and the move is expected to be completed sooner rather than later. Turnbull’s fee will be a club record received by Motherwell.
Move makes sense
It makes sense for Motherwell to want to take one of the two players on loan. They will be losing an attacking threat with Turnbull. Potentially either Morgan or Johnston could perhaps replace him in the side.
Morgan spent the second-half of last season on loan at Sunderland. He moved after failing to make the breakthrough into the Hoops first-team.
Found favour with manager
Johnston meanwhile, seems to have found favour with Neil Lennon, the midfielder started the Scottish Cup Final as a result.
Does that mean that Morgan is the more likely of the two to move to Motherwell? Possibly. However, the Hoops boss may want to keep both players at the club for the time being.
Perhaps neither player will be involved in the deal to take Turnbull to Celtic.
