‘Terrible Preseason So Far’ ‘Same Movie Every Year’ Fans left Frustrated With Celtic Poised To Miss Out On £3m Capture

Norwich City have had a £3.25m bid for Motherwell midfield David Turnbull accepted, according to various reports.

The Canaries now appear to be in pole position to capture the 19-year-old’s signature with Celtic having pulled out of the race.

Talks about a switch to Celtic Park were taking place as late as yesterday, but a decision was made by the club to end negotiations, with Turnbull expected to travel to Norfolk today in order in order to discuss terms with Norwich.

Fans are frustrated with the latest setback in the transfer market, but they now want the club to focus on strengthening other areas of the pitch where there are more pressing priorities:

Celtic had offered a four-year contract to Turnbull but the player’s agent has always insisted that he could earn more down south. Following the Hoops’ ultimatum, neither side were seemingly willing to compromise on the deal.

The most disappointing thing for supporters, though, is the lack of movement in general in the transfer market, with two weeks before the deadline to register players for the first leg of the Champions League qualifier against FK Sarajevo.
