Celtic have agreed on a deal with Motherwell for David Turnbull.
The highly-rated midfielder will cost around £3m plus add-ons according to BBC.
Turnbull had a very impressive season with Motherwell and the fans will be delighted to see him at Celtic next season.
Celtic needed a goalscoring midfielder like him and he will improve Neil Lennon’s side.
The Scottish giants had a bid rejected for the 19-year-old earlier in the week but they have moved swiftly to secure his services.
Celtic missed out on John McGinn under similar circumstances last summer and it seems that they have learned their lesson this time.
The Scottish champions have agreed to pay the asking price for the midfielder who scored 15 goals last season.
Celtic will want to defend their title next year and they need reinforcements to do that. Signing someone like Turnbull is a step in the right direction.
The midfielder knows the league well and he should be able to make an immediate impact next season.
Here is how some of the Celtic fans have reacted to their latest summer signing on Twitter.
A learning curve

Will be a good player in years to come.

A good move for a talented player, theres a gap in midfield if he proves himself. We are all selling clubs, all about level of club buying.

Celtic actually paying the fee another club is asking for is too good to be true. Turnbull and his agent are going to walk into Lawwell’s office and he’s going to offer him £20 a week

Turnbull is an outstanding signing for Celtic, knows the Scottish game very well for his age and is only going to get better and better training and that playing with better quality players week in week out! 3 million could be an absolute steal in the long run ?
