Norwich City could be ready to make another new signing after reports claimed they have had a bid accepted for Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull.

The 19-year-old was thought to be joining Celtic, but the Glasgow giants reportedly pulled out after refusing to meet the player's wage demands, according to the Scottish Daily Record.

They claim Turnbull will be in Norfolk on Wednesday to discuss terms with the Canaries.

Celtic had agreed a £3.25million fee with Motherwell and reportedly hoped Turnbull's agent would have a change of heart after issuing a take-it-or-leave it ultimatum last Friday over a four-year contract worth an initial £10,000 a week.

The Record said Turnbull's representative insisted the player could get more in England and wanted certain assurances over first team opportunities with Celtic.
