MOTHERWELL appear to have got their asking price for David Turnbull and have let their player go and discuss terms with the Scottish Champions.
If all goes well, Turnbull could be a Celtic player by the weekend and reporting to Lennoxtown on Monday morning when the rest of the squad return from a three-week break.
Motherwell’s stance on their star player has been firm from the beginning and Celtic have learned their lesson from last summer with the John McGinn saga.
However, according to Sunsport, the Fir Park outfit are going to try their luck off the back of the Turnbull agreement to land either Celtic’s Mikey Johnston or Lewis Morgan on loan next season.
Mikey was starting to get serious game time under Neil Lennon and even started the Scottish Cup Final so it would be a strange one if the Irishman let Mikey go anywhere.
Lewis Morgan’s story is a bit different with the midfielder yet to show Neil Lennon what he can do with the player being out on loan to Sunderland during the second part of last season. It’s likely Neil would like to run the rule over Morgan before making a decision.
With Mikey, Morgan, Sinclair, Forrest, Shved, Arzani, Dembele and even Oko-Flex as attacking midfield options – it’s safe to say they all won’t see game time next term.
