Motherwell Confirm ‘Record Fee’ Agreed with Celtic for Midfielder David Turnbull

Motherwell have this evening confirmed a ‘record fee’ has been agreed with Celtic for the sale of their midfielder David Turnbull.

The 19-year-old established himself as a key player in Stephen Robinson’s Well side throughout the 2018/19 campaign, scoring 15 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions for the senior side.

And now it seems his outstanding form has caught the attention of Neil Lennon and Celtic, who have acted quickly to secure one of Scottish football’s most outstanding young talents:

According to the BBC, English side Barnsley had a fee thought to be in the region of £1 million turned down for Turnbull last week, so it’s probably reasonable to assume Celtic’s offer was substantially higher, with Sky Sports reporting it to be in the region of £3 million.

Remarkably, that figure is the biggest incoming transfer to Fir Park since Phil O’Donnell was sold to Celtic in 1994.

Do you think David Turnbull is exactly the kind of player needed to revitalise Celtic’s squad, or should Lennon and co be searching for more proven talent from the European market?
