The future is uncertain for Motherwell starlet David Turnbull. It looked as if he was going to move to Celtic after the club agreed a £3 million fee with the Scottish Champions.

However, reports claim that the player and his agent rejected the terms of the deal, and looking for a move to England.

Would have received large wage increase

More reports revealed that Celtic were planning to offer the player 10 times the wage he is currently on at Fir Park.

So where does that leave the player? At the moment he is still at Motherwell. So far, the only side to have met the asking price for the player is Celtic.


However, following Celtic’s Tweets about the deal it would seem unlikely that they will offer Turnbull increased terms.

Player seems to want to move to England

So for the moment it looks as if the player will be remaining at Motherwell. However, the player looks to have his eyes set on a move to England.

Of course, any move cannot happen until a team other than Celtic matches Motherwell’s valuation on the player. Then the wages offered would have to be satisfactory to the player and his representatives.

It is an intriguing situation that Motherwell find themselves in. Naturally they would like to keep the player. However, a fee of £3 million would make a huge difference to the club’s finances.

All at the club will be hoping that the situation is resolved sooner rather than later.
