Celtic's summer transfer business has seen them pick up three new signings, but David Turnbull is one that got away from the Bhoys.

Christopher Jullien, Luca Connell and Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo have all joined, and Neil Lennon is likely to bring in other signings this summer too.

He will certainly want to bring in another playmaking, goalscoring midfielder, having seen his move for Motherwell ace Turnbull fall through last month.

 

Celtic first had a bid rejected for Turnbull, but then failed to agree terms. Just when Turnbull looked set to move to Norwich, the move to Celtic was resurrected, according to The Scottish Sun.

Turnbull sadly failed a medical, and whilst Celtic attempted to re-negotiate a deal, Motherwell confirmed last month that the deal was off as Turnbull went for knee surgery, ruling him out for six months.

Intriguingly though, Celtic posted a photo of Scott Brown over the weekend, showing him standing over an injured Rennes player – and as Celtic celebrated their captain's dominance, Turnbull was seen 'liking' the photo on Twitter.

Turnbull seemingly still has Celtic in mind, even with his move off. Celtic should certainly move again in 2020 though, as the 19-year-old – who hit 16 goals last season – should still be perfect for the Bhoys.

He's young, talented and Scottish, whilst sorting out his knee now may well make him even better when he returns – and having been impressed with that Brown photo, there should still be a chance of the par playing together for Celtic in the future.
