The 19-year-old Scotland u-21 international is expected to sign for the Glasgow giants later today after also attracting heavy interest from Premier League newcomers Norwich City.

It is not known how strong the interest was from Wednesday for the combative youngster, who netted 15 goals for Motherwell last season.

It brings to an end a bizarre run of events that saw Celtic claim their interest in the player was over earlier this week, releasing a statement on Twitter lambasting the actions of Turnbull’s agent after a £3.25m offer from Norwich was reportedly accepted.
