According to a report on the BBC Sport website, Celtic forward, Lewis Morgan has been given the all clear to speak with David Beckham’s newly established MLS side Inter Miami.
The article doesn’t detail whether or not Miami are interested in a loan deal or permanent transfer but the 23-year-old is unlikely to have a long term future at the Parkhead after failing to impress following his £300,000 move from St Mirren in January 2018.
Morgan has played 31 times for the Hoops, making 10 starts and scoring just 2 goals, most recently he was called into action as an auxiliary striker with Odsonne Edouard being sidelined through injury. Despite lifting the Betfed Cup after a 1-0 victory over city rivals, Rangers, Morgan was ineffective and did little to suggest that he has the quality to be a serious option for Neil Lennon as they look to secure 9-in-a-row.
The Daily Mail have also picked up the story but again it is unclear as to whether or not Miami are looking to loan the Scottish international in time for the MLS season starting in February or are prepared to make Celtic an offer to sign Morgan permanently.
Morgan will be aware that, despite recent international call-ups, his form is almost non-existent and won’t be anywhere near the squad for Scotland’s huge, Nations League, play-off fixture against Israel in March. He will also know that Jonny Russell has still been getting called up for squads whilst he has been plying his trade in the USA.
There are also rumours of a re-union with Jack Ross at Hibernian having worked under him at both St Mirren and Sunderland but, as yet, nothing concrete has been established.
What should Celtic do with Lewis Morgan?
Morgan is at a crossroads in his career where he needs to be playing regular football to develop and improve, whether that is in Scotland and in the Premiership or in the MLS is a decision he will have to make, either way, if he stays at Celtic, he is unlikely to see anything other than an ever increasing bank balance and a decent view of the Hoops from the stand.
