All agent talk I suspect. Trying to get Celtic to push the boat out a little more out of fear they'll lose him.

Is this the player celtic were sending tweets out about earlier in the week?

 

Its the right type of signing. However the dosh required is a bit of a head scratcher for me. 

 

This smacks of agent talk, if in doubt, link Wednesday. That might hurry up things with celtic.

Looking at calculated gamble ratio, there is no player in the world I would like us to try to sign more.

Can’t see us spending 3 million on a player and also offering more wages than Celtic. Think he will still end up at Celtic.

Looking at official tweet from Celtic regarding him, I don't think he will sign with them.

The lads obviously going to be in and around the first team if he comes to us, we shouldn't have a problem offering him a deal close to the 20k hes after if its for 3/4 year.. i hope we get talking to him asap if true

Mate, do you think there is any trouth in these reports ?

 

I know Barnsley offeres 2m for him and got it turned down...

 

Then again Bruce signed McGinn and there is a chance he thinks of Turnbull as a better prospect.

 

Keeping fingers crossed.

What because Bannan, Fletcher and Wallace in recent years have been so bad for us?

Don't know much about the player, but seems highly rated. I'm confident we can compete with Celtic on wages, but the fee and FFP may be an issue. 

 

That said £3m amortized over a 4 or 5 year contract for FFP purposes may be realistic. 

 

Just hope if it comes off he will be a McGinn type of signing and not a Rhys McCabe type. 

 

That said, sometimes it is necessary to take a calculated risk. If reported interest in this lad and Onomah is followed up, our midfield would start looking a lot stronger and we would own players with real potenrial to increase in value.

He wants £20k a week which is probably £10k less than Abdi was on so can’t see the wages being a problem.

 

The £3m fee on the other hand is a whole different matter.

I’d say the wages are the bigger issue because if you think about it, a 4 year deal on £20k a week would be £4m in wages and £7m total outlay.

 

if he’s a flop, which tbh happens frequently when players sign from Scotland, we’d never be able to sell him back across the border if he’s on that. At least with the fee we might recoup half, but the wages are a big risk

 

on the other hand he might be the next Robertson or McGinn and therefore a bargain.. hard to say but it’s a big outlay for someone who’s only played 30 games at that level
