David Turnbull could make a late exit from Celtic this January with Championship outfit Cardiff City reportedly interested.

Sky Sports say that Erol Bulut's side are in talks with the Scottish Premiership champions over a move for the former Motherwell man.

Turnbull has been in and out of the Celtic team under Ange Postecoglou and Brendan Rodgers and it is understood he is keen to find regular game time.

Cardiff could offer the Scotland international exactly that as he aims to impress ahead of the European Championships later this year.

With Turnbull out of contract in the summer a deal could be completed for the 24-year-old this month.

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers retains hope the club can sign a player that can make a difference to his team as the transfer deadline approaches.

The Premiership leaders’ sole January signing, Nicolas Kuhn, made his debut off the bench during a 1-0 win over Ross County on Saturday.

Rodgers has been looking for quality rather than quantity after the club went largely for young and inexperienced additions in the summer, most of whom have struggled to break into the first team.

Rodgers said: “There are numbers of areas we’re looking at. I can only concentrate on the players I have here now. But certainly there are areas we are looking to improve on.

“Hopefully there’s movement, that’s the plan. Getting that player in who can help our level and allow us to develop. We will see over the coming days, but hopefully that’s the case.”

Rodgers was responding to a question about the left-back position after Greg Taylor was ruled out for several weeks with a calf problem.

Alexandro Bernabei made his first start under Rodgers and played a key role in Alistair Johnston’s first-minute goal as he got into the final third and delivered a dangerous low cross.

Rodgers said: “He gave everything he had. With Greg being the regular full-back it’s been difficult for him to have possibilities. But he gave everything.

“A few misplaced passes, but he got through the 90 minutes and hopefully that gives him confidence and he can better from that.”
