Am I the only one to see why this is possibly a good decision, we need to keep their loanee defender. Turner needs rehabilitation and match fitness following his injury win/win. Proves himself at Airdrie gets a decent contract renewal. Pretty simple, or am I missing something?

A very optimistic view of things regarding Turner I'd say.

Just signed for Airdrie on loan as well which is a weird one. Would’ve thought he’d be someone moving up the way come summer.

Been rumours for months Hearts have offered him a deal. We've been linked by some fans for years too.

He'll definitely be moving up from Dunfermline this Summer, guess someone at the club has thrown a wee huff about it.

Aye, him.

Hard to know what's true and what's not, but apparently a few clubs tried to sign him in January for next to nothing and got rejected.

Then we should have sent them McCann, Todd or O'Hara.

Maybe they wanted to stay...

Without having any insider knowledge at all... 

I reckon clubs have approached him in the January window offering a decent payrise plus a move up in a level, obviously Turner would've been very, very, very keen for this, we have rejected it reckoning we'd be better keeping him for a few months, Turner wasn't happy, to what extent he's then taken that unhappiness has then ensured Crawford doesn't want him around the squad. 

He'll be away in the summer.

You can see why we’ve worked with airdrie to come to a deal so we can keep MacDonald.  That seems a rational thing to do given our defensive injuries recently.

However Turner going is clearly down to something off-field.  It can’t be as simple as him refusing to sign a renewal,  that’s something that happens all the time, and something our captain also has done apparently, there must be more too it than that.  

Had there not been something happening off-field then players like McCann or Todd and o’hara would have went instead,  possibly even 2 of them.

It's pure speculation but we had a young CM on trial, let him leave without a deal as we were apparently working on another deal, Kyle Turner was mentioned, then returned to the young CM late on deadline day.

Wouldn't be shocked if we'd tried to sign him for a nominal fee and got told to bolt, and/or Hearts have tried to do the same and you've refused to sell him to a rival when you've still got promotion hopes.

Hearts one would be more likely to unsettle him IMO.

Sounds like the relationship has broken down on both sides. These things happen.

I thought he had improved from last season but not the player some make out. For an ''attacking midfielder'' he doesn't score many goals or provide many assists. He tidy enough on the ball and will improve those stats that impact games no doubt. I think he was probably at the right club to develop. I really don't think he's good enough or physical enough for the Premiership.

True to Robbie Neilson style too.

He was openly commenting to the press about signing Kevin Nisbet signing for Dundee Utd last January window.

My wild stab in the dark, sweetie wife guess is that Hearts have offered Craig Wighton in a swap deal for Turner and Pars have rejected it as they wanted a transfer fee. Turner has thrown his toys out the pram due to this. Crawford isn't the type of guy to create  a stooshie out of nothing.

I have never met Kyle Turner in my puff but he came a across as a huffy wee bugger in a Pars shirt. Always blaming his team mates when he made mistakes and a visibly petulant demeanour. His tweet the other week reinforces my impression of him.

I guess we are due a fee from whoever gets him in the summer due to his age (assuming he was offered a contract).

Heard that he suggested to Crawford that we actually attack teams and try to play in a positive manner. 

Crawford, absolutely appalled at such anathema, has exiled Turner for this blasphemy.

Will do very well in league 1 I would imagine. Airdrie have done well out of this situation.

He has been decent for us, certainly stepped up from last season, but he won’t be THAT much of a miss. If he is being an arse in training or around others then get him to f*ck. Can only assume there has been words said that hasn’t went down well to cause this.

Airdrie had a deal to loan MacDonald back. We only have 2 available full-backs just now, MacDonald included. I can only assume Crawford has indicated to Airdrie the situation and he has suggested taking Turner instead, as he would most likely still be frozen out and have plenty midfield options.

ICT and Ayr doing us a massive favour tonight by beating Raith and Dundee, respectively.

I had figured Turner was done at The Pars but was still shocked to see this.

Assume he just wanted out of the club and the manager wanted him out of the club. So, thats him away in a deal that benefits both parties.

He definitely came onto a game before all of this, should absolutely stroll league one you would think, but still needs to prove himself. Hopefully we forget all about him.

Craw is on the official website stating that Turner turned down a contract offer a number of weeks ago. Doesn't mention anything else but I think there has certainly been a fall out of some sort too around that time. He says that the deal came about from Ian Murray asking about Turner and Craw thought it was of more benefit balancing the squad by getting a defender in and we could afford to close a central midfielder.

Lots of players turn down contract extensions and play on for the rest of the season. Pretty certain that Euan Murray has turned down a deal and he is performing really well week in week out.  Now that we know a contract was offered, will we be due compensation from his next permanent club? He turned 23 in November.
