The long-running transfer saga involving David Turnbull’s £3.25 million move from Motherwell to Celtic has reportedly taken another twist.
The Daily Record is reporting that the deal could be off, due to issues with Turnbull’s medical. The report goes on to claim that talks are taking place between Celtic and Motherwell to try to solve the problem.
Saga has dominated transfer window
May have to move on to other targets
Neil Lennon will want a solution to the issue as soon as possible. He has been keen to sign the player. But should the move be off, then he will need to quickly move on to new targets.
If it is a medical issue which derails the move, it is hard not to feel sorry for the player. It could put what looks to be a very promising career on the back burner for a time.
Hopefully the issue isn’t as bad as first thought and Turnbull can complete the move to Celtic. If it is off though, it is just another twist in what has been a very unlikely saga.
