It shows that his stance with Celtic was the right one to take.

Norwich City have already aided a player like Turnbull

According to the Daily Express, the Motherwell youth academy product didn’t want to go to Parkhead over first team football fears. If this is the case, he was right to refuse their initial offer.

Now that deal looks dead in the water, Norwich seems like a likely home. It’s been said Turnbull is all but leaving before right enough, so until he moves, Turnbull is very much a Motherwell player.
