‘Could be very smart’ – Bristol City linked with player move: Opinion



Bristol City are one of several Championship clubs interested in 19-year-old Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull, it has been reported.

Turnbull has enjoyed an impressive debut season in regular senior football, scoring 13 goals in 29 Scottish Premiership appearances to earn himself the Scottish Writer’s Young Player of the Season award.

That form has reportedly generated plenty of interest in Turnbull south of the border, with The Scottish Sun reporting that Bristol City; Derby County and recently relegated Premier League side Cardiff City all watching Turnbull during Motherwell’s 2-0 defeat to St Johnstone on Saturday.

The midfielder still has two years left on his contract at Fir Park, meaning Motherwell are unlikely to let him go easily.

So would Turnbull be a good signing for Bristol City?

We asked some of our Football League World writers for their thoughts.

George Brooks

“This could be a great signing for Bristol City.

“Turnball has a lot of potential and could have what it takes to become a top player in the Championship.

“He has adapted well to first-team football at Motherwell and has a very impressive goal-scoring record.”

Louie Chandler

“It could be very smart.
“Bristol City could really struggle to hold onto Josh Brownhill this season and Turnbull could be a good replacement.
“It could be a tough summer for Lee Johnson but this would be a good starting point.”
Toby Wilding
“This could be a smart move for both parties.
“Turnbull has plenty of potential, and is clearly capable of adapting quickly, as his promising start to his career shows.
“Bristol City have a good history of giving opportunities to young players, and Turnbull could be the next to benefit from that.”
George Harbey
“I think he would be a very useful signing.
“Bristol City have a lot of talented midfielders at the club already, but need younger, fresher competition in there.
“Turnbull is a versatile player, and is definitely one for the future.”
