David Turnbull is on the brink of a £2 million transfer from Celtic to Cardiff City, who currently sit 14th in the English Championship.

This move is seen as beneficial for both the player and Celtic. Turnbull is expected to get more regular playing time at Cardiff, while Celtic stands to gain financially from a player they risked losing for free.

Turnbull’s departure seems to be proceeding independently of Reo Hatate’s recent injury concerns. Hatate suffered a calf injury during Japan’s 3-1 victory over Bahrain, but this has not influenced Celtic’s decision regarding Turnbull’s transfer.

Turnbull is now awaiting the final go-ahead to begin discussions over personal terms with Cardiff. This impending move marks a key moment in his career, offering him a fresh challenge and the opportunity for more consistent game time.
