David Turnbull is on his way to Norwich to hold talks over his £3.25million switch from Motherwell.

Fir Park chiefs accepted an offer from the Premier League new boys last night on the same terms previously offered by Celtic.

And it is understood that the Scotland Under-21 playmaker, who scored 15 goals for his boyhood club last season, is now travelling south to open discussions with Canaries boss Daniel Farke over a move to Carrow Road.

The Hoops pulled out of the running to sign the 19-year-old midfield ace after issuing a take-it-or-leave ultimatum last week.

They said they had made Turnbull a "magnificent offer" but were ready to "move on" to other targets if Turnbull would not accept.

Well bosses were hoping to cash in a "transformational" sum that would secure the fan-owned club's future, but that was threatened when Celtic finally backed out on Tuesday night.

However, Norwich have stepped forward to offer an up-front bid of £3m, with further payments to come if additional clauses are triggered - including a sell-on fee.
