There is a bit of confusion surrounding Celtic and their reported interest in Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull.

The BBC reports that both Celtic and Championship side Barnsley have had bids turned down by the Fir Park club for the player. The report goes on to claim that one of the clubs offered £2 million.

However, the Scottish Sun has reported that whilst Barnsley have bid £2 million for the player, Celtic have yet to bid for the midfielder.

Still in discussions?

The report goes on to claim that the Hoops are still to make their first offer for the player, and are still in discussions with the Steelmen.


Celtic fans will be feeling a sense of deja vu with the reports about Turnbull. They will be concerned that the club miss out on a transfer target for the second summer in a row.

Fans will be unhappy if player is not signed

Last season the Hoops missed out on John McGinn. It would not go down well with the fans if Turnbull wasn’t snapped up despite the Hoops being interested.

It will take big money to get the player to Celtic. Motherwell must feel they can get a sizeable fee for the player if they are turning down £2 million bids.

If Neil Lennon wants the player, Celtic need to do all that they can to ensure that he joins Celtic.
