Celtic 'unable to come to agreement' on Motherwell star

Motherwell's David Turnbull

Motherwell's David Turnbull

Celtic appear to have embroiled themselves in the summer transfer saga they were reportedly so desperate not to do.

But the 19-year-old player and Glasgow club could not reach an agreement over personal terms.

Turnbull, who scored 15 goals for his boyhood club last season, has two years left to run on his contract.

And the Northern Irishman's interest has overcome his disappointment about the public nature of their approach, with Celtic launching a bid anyway.

The Hoops came out in the open with their version of the events on Friday and insisted that the player rejected "a magnificent offer" from the club.

And this time, it was Celtic who spoke out about Turnbull's future, taking to Twitter to explain the situation.

Fed Rate Cuts are Coming, So Why Didn't the Dollar Crash?
The Fed did not give in to pressure to change rates, leaving the federal-funds rate in a range between 2.25% and 2.5%. The new economic projections showed policymakers' views of growth and unemployment were largely unchanged from March.

The concern for Turnbull is that he fears, with the offer on the table, that he isn't being viewed as a regular first-team player.

Celtic have agreed a £3m deal for Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull.

But the fan-owned Fir Park outfit now say the improved sum offered by Celtic will make a major difference to their plans going forward.

Celtic know the wage that Turnbull is now on at Motherwell and, although there has been a significant increase, the feeling is it is not in line with a player who is set to play a big part under Hoops boss Neil Lennon next season. "If not, we move on".

Turnbull was also shortlisted for the Professional Footballers' Association Scotland Young Player of the Year prize but was this week overlooked for a place in Steve Clarke's first national squad ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifiers with Cyprus and Belgium.
