Celtic are reportedly set to reignite their interest in David Turnbull once again in January, and it makes sense for the Hoops to pursue a move for a second time. 

The midfielder came incredibly close to sealing a £3.25million move in the summer before his medical revealed he required surgery on a knee problem and the move fell through.

However, according to Football Insider, Celtic are keen to sign the midfielder once again if he is fit in January for the same fee as previously agreed in the summer.

READ CELTIC VERDICT

A move for Turnbull once again in January certainly makes sense from Celtic’s point of view, if the midfielder has recovered by then as expected. 

Neil Lennon is looking to strengthen his midfield options in the upcoming transfer window and Turnbull would bolster the Celtic boss’ options. 

The 20-year-old was one of the standout players for Motherwell last season, scoring 16 goals and creating seven assists in 34 appearances, and his creativity would be a big benefit for Celtic. 

Should Celtic sign Turnbull in January if he is fit?

Yes

No
