You may have seen over the last week or so, that there has been a bit of a transfer saga going on in Scotland between Celtic and Motherwell midfielder, David Turnbull – or you may not.

Sometimes I forget that not everyone follows the sports news as much as I do.

Anyway, Celtic had a £3.25m bid for Turnbull accepted but the player and the SPL Champions couldn’t seem to agree a package, which is odd because you’d think it’d be a dream move for most Scottish lads.

On Tuesday, Celtic appeared to end their interest in the player, only for several media outlets to suggest that Turnbull was going to Norwich, including the Daily Mail.

The 19-year-old scored 15 goals for Motherwell last season but it seems the stumbling block was wages with Celtic not prepared to pay more than an initial £10k per week.

Norwich were rumoured to be lurking, and it was just rumours (on Twitter), but according to the Daily Record ,Turnbull will discuss terms on a transfer to Carrow Road today (Wednesday), after Motherwell accepted a £3m bid from the Canaries.

Blimey, it’s all happening, isn’t it?!
