The one-time Celtic target posted an interesting tweet about reported suitors Norwich City four years ago.
Well, Celtic have seemingly pulled the plug on a deal for David Turnbull, but were Norwich City always his first option?
According to BBC Sport, Norwich have now agreed a fee with Motherwell after Celtic walked away from the transfer on Tuesday evening.
The 19-year-old had a brilliant breakthrough season with the Scottish side, netting 15 goals from advanced midfield.
And it looks like a switch to the newly-promoted Premier League side might be on the cards – but were they always his first choice?
Four years ago, when Turnbull was 15, he sent a tweet that read ‘C’mon Norwich’ alongside green and yellow heart emojis.
C’mon Norwich— David Turnbull (@10DavidTurnbull) May 25, 2015
Only last week it looked like Turnbull was set to join the Hoops, but he was reportedly concerned that he wouldn’t be a first-team player under Neil Lennon.
Celtic then revealed on Twitter that his entourage had concerns about the personal terms on offer.
In any case, it seems possible that he has always had something of a soft spot for the Canaries, who now look favourites to capture the Scottish teenager, but few would be surprised if there are more twists in this one.
