Celtic are close to completing their first signing of the January transfer window within this week, as St. Mirren midfielder Lewis Morgan is poised to sign for the Scottish champions.

Morgan has been pictured arriving for his medical ahead of completing his move to Celtic. He checked in at Glasgow’s Ross Hall hospital, as reported by the Daily Record.

He has been a key figure for St. Mirren, and will join the Hoops in a deal worth around £300,000.

The free scoring midfielder has scored nine league goals and 13 goals in all competitions for St. Mirren.

He will be sent back on loan to the Scottish Championship leaders until the end of the season.

St. Mirren boss Jack Ross said on Tuesday that they will only allow the player to leave if Morgan returns to the Paisley club on loan for the rest of the season.

The youngster is a former Rangers' academy kid, and is a top young talent who could go onto becoming a top player for Scotland for years to come.
