There has finally been some activity at Celtic Park as we approach the end of the January transfer window, although it is expected to divide the opinion of the fans. The club are believed to be on the verge of signing Adam Idah on loan from Norwich City. They needed a third striker and it seems like the Republic of Ireland international has been picked to take up that role.
On the other hand, there are some who look set to head out of Parkhead before the end of the January transfer window. David Turnbull appears to be one such player.
There has been speculation about his future, with his current deal running out in the summer. And as reported by The Mail, Celtic are poised to transfer Turnbull to Cardiff City in a deal worth £2 million.
Turnbull had looked like an important part of Brendan Rodgers' plans earlier in the season and was scoring consistently from midfield. But he has found game time hard to come by lately and with his contract running down, it is not hard to see why the club might view it as the right time to part ways.

Turnbull is certainly a very talented goalscoring midfielder. But there are other areas of his game which do not seem to be the right fit for Rodgers' style of football.
Paulo Bernardo has impressed in recent times and had moved ahead of him in the pecking order. Thus, a move away, especially with his contract running down, made sense for all parties involved.
In the right team, Turnbull can be a decent contributor. He has been at Celtic since the summer of 2020 and if he is indeed heading for Cardiff City, then we can only wish him the best of luck.
