David Turnbull’s move from Motherwell to Neil Lennon’s Celtic is off.

Motherwell CEO Alan Burrows has given his take on Twitter on David Turnbull’s failed transfer to Celtic in the summer transfer window.

Turnbull was set to join Celtic from Scottish Premiership rivals Motherwell this summer for £3.25 million, but it did not go through after it emerged during the medical that the midfielder needs “immediate preventative” knee surgery, as reported by BBC Sport.

Motherwell CEO Burrows believes that the 19-year-old midfielder will bounce back from his disappointment, and has praised the Celtic medical staff for looking after the Scotland Under-21 international.

January transfer to Celtic?

Turnbull is a very good and promising young midfielder who can only get better in the coming years, and perhaps Celtic should try again for the teenager in the January transfer window.

After all, Celtic saw something in Turnbull that they wanted to sign him this month, and the midfielder will not lose his quality or calibre because of injury.

The midfielder would be a good long-term signing for Glasgow giants Celtic.
