Would prefer if we didn't sign him now. Fair play to the club keeping us informed how greedy this agent is

Have to imagine Motherwell must be well ticked off at Turnbull. They had to be over the moon at the prospect of getting a record transfer fee into their back account and now that is up in the air. We offered him a massive wage increase as well as offering Motherwell 3m for a 19 year with only 1 season in the spfl behind him. Never mind the fact that of course playing for us is such a big stage if he even only was looking long term.
3m is a lot to offer for a 19 year old with only 1 season in the spfl as well but I was ok with it as he looks a good player. But this reaction to a great opportunity for him at just 19 well he can take a hike as I said.

He should be looking to let his football do the talking, the money will follow from there. Id question his desire to play for Celtic and his mentality to succeed at a big club where competition for places is the norm. His stance could be a blessing in disguise

His agent is 90% responsible for this. Fcuking agents are ruining the game, pure greed. I'd leave it at that tbh, good luck to him. 3m quid and what sounds like a massive increase in salary and his agent is holding out for more? Good luck.

Looks like the Turnbull deal may still go ahead according to reports, which is great so long as it’s not dragged out. He should either sign or the deal should be declared dead by the next day or two.

Anyway we need a rb and a cb as a priority and we need quality in those areas.

Ntcham linked with a move to Marseille which is fine so long as we replace him properly and spend the money we get for him.

Would be worried if Edouard was to go this summer, we wouldn’t replace him easily. He has 3 years left on his deal so hopefully we will keep him till next summer at least.

Lustig away to Gent.

A great servant who will be fondly remembered.

Sarajevo up first in the UCL . An Armenian crowd are they? As handy as we could have hoped for.

Ya I got confused. Nothing handy about a trip to Armenia either. What date is the home tie?

So the Turnbull saga takes another twist with Norwich offering £3.25m for the player. Looks like that's that then.

Shame to have lost out, but if the reports are anything to go by, I'm not sure Celtic could have done anymore. There has to be a ceiling on what a young player who still has a lot to prove gets paid. Cringe-worthy tweets aside, the club have handled this well - can't complete with an agent pushing his client to play in the Premiership, and the money that goes with it.

Seems David Turnbull has had a last minute change of mind and it looks like he will be signing for us after all for 3.25m.

LOL looks like I got told the right thing after all. A lot of drama over a kid who might take a while to even get a chance of a game for Celtic. Anyway hopefully he’ll end being a good signing.

Still need those defenders
