Norwich are set to lose out on David Turnbull to Celtic.
Celtic's on and off transfer deal for David Turnbull has the go ahead once again, The Daily Record report.
It was a week ago that Celtic issued a statement saying Turnbull had rejected their offer. He has since been in talks to sign with Norwich City.
The Daily Record's report does not suggest Celtic have made an improved offer, but instead claims Turnbull feels the move will be better for his career.
This could mean Norwich were not able to offer the playing time he wanted, or simply that he wanted to compete for trophies and play in Europe.
The saga has caused a lot of consternation among Celtic fans, but objectively, it is fair for Turnbull to take time to explore his options.
Norwich on the other hand are the fall guys, and will have to 'move on' as Celtic put it. Fortunately there is plenty of time remaining in the transfer window to do so.
Here is a look at how their fans reacted...
#NCFC I don't know if I'm just being pessimistic but after watching the highlights of Turnbull on YouTube it doesn't really seem like he's that special.— anon. (@_Renskay) June 20, 2019
Half of his goals are just from poorly hit deflections off opponents, that he wanders in the right place to rebound.
It was because we couldn't offer game time mate— . (@_t1902) June 20, 2019
Gotta say if this is to be believed then— Chris Deighton (@chrisdeighton) June 20, 2019
1. Sounds like agent hyping up best deal
2. Sounds more like arrogant kid came in with demands, and farke and Webber told him to do one and agent now spinning it
3. If that’s his choice we are better off without
4. Could all be bollocks ha
Don’t want a player if he’s not happy to pull on the shirt and work for a place in the starting 11... good riddance if he’s not happy with what we can offer with our young player track record...— Euan Jacks (@EuanJacks) June 20, 2019
