Given that it was Motherwell that took care of the boys rehab, I would hope that Celtic have absolutely no guarantees in place to get first bite at the cherry. 

Like others I would love us to get at least to the New Year out of DT just to enjoy him a little longer. If he is to go, it would be better for all concerned if he went south. With both Newcastle and Leeds now interested Im sure the chances of Celtic getting him on the cheap are diminishing rapidly.

Well you would hope the club would use the interest as leverage with Celtic, as long as nothing has been agreed in advance which was my worry. If we have the big premiership clubs fighting it out we could gain more than the 3 millions. We all know he won’t be here next season so we  might as well get the maximum we can. We should certainly not be accepting any less than the original offer.

If dt went to either Newcastle or Leeds he would at least have players he new from within the Motherwell team in the form of Gillespie or young mckinstry  would be far better for him to develop even better than at celtic

Why were Celtic allowed to have a Representative at a closed door game?

Why not, Its no secret Turnbull is up for sale so the more clubs interested in his services the better for Motherwell,  I suspect the Celtic scout was not the only one watching him.

It's a Celtic scout, no doubt looking through the bins at Fir Park for his dinner and watching the game over the wall from the houses up the Fir Park Street..puddle drinking vermin. 

You know the £1.5m bid is incoming with Lawwell doing an impression of a dodgy East End mechanic sucking in his breath, rubbing his chin and mentioning a 'risk' about a knee and some pandemic...

It's also professional courtesy. Seems a fairly common practice to give scouts/managers from other teams access to games - and the same teams allow our scouts into their games.

Sometimes they want to go unnoticed so they pay their gate money, but that seems to be less common these days. I remember one game where David Pleat was on the Fir Park terrace (so the unnoticed thing didn't go too well).

He can say what he likes. DT is under contract with us for the next 2 seasons.

Its quite funny, people talking about "bidding wars". Clubs know our price, and after him signing a contract extension Id be amazed if there wasnt some kind of release clause inserted. NOBODY is bidding more than £3m for him. Any interested club will match the first bid accepted and look to win him on the sales pitch. Its imperative the club shows a backbone and accepts nothing less than the £3m we accepted last time

Looking at the amount of players that have came in we're looking for a windfall from somewhere. That somewhere I'm sure is Turnbull. 

I'd rather it wasn't Celtic but wherever it is I wish him well.

Gotta remember we sold Scott for 7 figures (I think) at the end of last season. And also senior members of the squad have left.

 

Having said that I think we're almost certainly gonna sell someone this window.

Mentioned it previously, If it is a move to Newcastle or Leeds, spending 6 months on loan up here until January can't be the worst shout with our season starting in two weeks time and the Premier league probably still three months away from restarting.

No real rush to sell so I hope it's not a case of Celtic make an offer we accept and deal is done.  Wherever he ends up eventually I will wish him the best as he has stood by the club and been very loyal.  COYW

As others are saying no immediate rush to sell with the window not closing until October.  We shouldn't sell unless a ridiculously high offer comes in.

I agree with all of that. But the club stood by DT as well, so loyalty works both ways. We have done very well by injured players in the last few seasons. That wont go un-noticed by any prospective new signings.

Yep totally agree as well with what you say. I just wouldn't want to see him getting a hard time from fans if he signed for Celtic.  If we get good money then it will really help the club on a sound financial footing

You would hope that the supporters would understand he did the right thing by the club by extending his contract, many would have refused. He’s moving on regardless, just need to get the best price we can for him, hopefully that’s from a club down south but I still think it will be Celtic for 3 million.

Its never a good idea to sell your best assets to a rival team in the same league, and ideally a move to the EPL or Championship would be best.

But if the Celtic bid  ends up as the only one on the table and it is £3 million with add ons etc then so be it, it becomes a no brainer for the club.

If I was DT, I'd be most concerned about where I was going to get game time at this point in my career. Celtic don't have the best track record for fielding young players they buy (Ryan Christie and Lewis Morgan spring to mind), but I'm not sure Newcastle would be much better in that regard.

However, I'm not DT, and expect he'll make the decision that suits him best (as he should). In the meantime, I just hope we get at least another 6 months from him.

Where was it said Celtic were at the Killie game? Tabloid chat?

For a “behind closed doors game” it’s pretty disappointing the club are allowing other clubs officials in to watch the games but not our own supporters.

Bit of a difference between a couple of scouts and thousands of fans
