LEWIS MORGAN’S Celtic career looks all but over after the latest news coming out of the US.
In a bizarre turn of events, the player was scouted and sounded out by brand new MLS Club Inter Miami before their debut season which kicks off in March.
With Lewis being a bit-part player at Celtic and the club being offered much more than they paid for the winger in the first place – it looks like a no brainer for both parties.
The unexpected chance to move across the pond, make more money and play regular football for a few years should be too tempting to turn down.
As we sit here today – the deal looks very much on with the Inter Miami sporting director Paul McDonough, telegraphing this major hint as reported by RecordSport.
“We have significant international players still to sign.
“We have an international winger that we’ve got agreed, we’re doing personal terms with.
“We have a DP striker that we’ve agreed [a fee] with the club, trying to see if we can get personal terms done.
“We have midfielders we’re trying to secure and one or two centre-backs.”
Classing Lewis Morgan as an international winger is technically correct with the player having two caps for Scotland.
A few weeks ago the player was being linked with a move back to Paisley and the potential of a move to Edinburgh to reunite with former boss Jack Ross.
For this to come so out the blue, the player flew back from Dubai, where Celtic have been training in order to discuss his future and sort out personal terms.
