Celtic are ready to offload David Turnbull permanently to Cardiff City, according to a report from The Daily Mail.
It has been a frustrating window for the Hoops fans who will hope that the Bhoys could be involved in some late transfers. According to BBC Sports, Brendan Rodgers wants to bring one or two new faces before time runs out, but the Bhoys can only do so on loan.
In terms of players going out, Celtic are now looking to offload Turnbull in a £2 million deal. The 24-year-old, who is on £16k-per-week, has only a few months left on his contract at Celtic Park, and the Bhoys have decided to cash in on him.
The Hoops attacking midfielder has made 16 appearances in the Scottish Premiership this season, scoring seven goals. However, keeping his contract situation in mind, Celtic have decided to offload him.
According to Sky Sports journalist, Anthony Joseph, (transfer live blog) negotiations have reached an advanced stage, and only the structure of the deal is left to be finalised.
Key player for the Bhoys
Turnbull, who joined from Motherwell in 2020, quickly established himself as a key player for the Hoops, and he has been one of their most consistent players in their last few years.
He has made over 130 appearances for the club, scoring 31 goals. He is a fantastic player who can also create chances for his teammates.
This season, he has started in only nine games, which shows while Rodgers trusts him, he can still do without him at the moment. The decision to offload him makes a lot of sense, and he could be a good signing for Cardiff City who already signed Nat Phillips from Liverpool on loan.
The player himself wants to move elsewhere in order to get regular games as it will give him the best chance of making the Scotland squad for Euro 2024 this summer.
Meanwhile, Celtic could be looking to land another player before the deadline, with Adam Idah being heavily linked with a move.
