Celtic winger Lewis Morgan is on the verge of signing a three-year deal with Major League soccer side Inter Miami, according to reports.
As stated on the Daily Record’s website earlier this week, the Celtic man has reportedly applied for a work permit and is now waiting for all the paperwork to successfully go through before finalising his transfer and making it official.
However, the deal to sell the 23-year-old is “all but done” according to reports, which will make it second transfer deal of the winter Celtic will be completing this month. And the Glasgow club are said to have accepted an offer of around £300,000 for the attacker.
The Scotsman only made five league appearances this season for Neil Lennon’s side. Morgan has struggled for game time under Lennon this season and we feel that this transfer makes sense for all parties involved.
Morgan is likely to get the game time that he desires, Inter Miami are getting a young and exciting player, whilst Celtic are offloading a player that wasn’t really making an impact at the club, so in many ways, everyone wins.
His move to Inter Miami makes it second player shown the exit way at Parkhead this month with winger Scott Sinclair also leaving Celtic for Preston North End earlier this month and I believe that Lennon is doing the right thing by offloading those players that are not getting much playing time because it frees up some vital space on the wage bill.
