Some Celtic fans think David Turnbull will still end up signing for the club despite his signing of a new contract at Motherwell this week.

The midfielder, who almost signed for the Scottish champions last summer and even reported to Neil Lennon at Lennoxtown, has just returned from a long-term injury that scuppered his transfer.

Making two substitute appearances since then, he has obviously inspired enough confidence in the medical team at the Steelmen that the club are happy to hand him a new deal.


He’s extended his stay at Fir Park by a year to the summer of 2022, giving them a bit of security when it comes to a transfer fee.

The next couple of months are now critical for the player in getting back to full fitness ahead of another transfer window that could be big in his career.

Will Celtic return for a player they were willing to invest a seven-figure fee in just last year? Will clubs from England even enter the race, like when Norwich tried to hijack our bid?

Turnbull will likely be solely focused on getting back to a regular game for Motherwell but if he can show a bit of form again and prove his fitness then he’s likely to have suitors again, even though he’s signed this contract.
