Celtic winger Lewis Morgan is reportedly on the verge of leaving Neil Lennon’s Hoops and a number of Parkhead fans seem to be ecstatic about the prospect.
A number of Celtic fans have been commenting on Twitter regarding speculation linking Lewis Morgan with a Parkhead departure.
The 23-year-old signed for the Hoops from St Mirren in January 2018 – going back on loan for the rest of the season – but has only played 31 games for the Scottish treble treble winners.
Morgan has remained on the fringes of Neil Lennon’s team this season, clocking up 18 appearances in total for less than 900 minutes of action, and making just three Scottish Premiership starts (Transfermarkt).
The Brendan Rodgers signing has reportedly flown home from Celtic’s training camp in Dubai (Daily Record) to try and sort a deal with David Beckham’s Inter Miami, who are gearing up for their first season in Major League Soccer.
The Florida-based outfit is said to have offered Morgan a “lucrative long-term deal” after agreeing a “six-figure sum” with the Scottish champions.
In addition, STV has reported that the offer Celtic have accepted is “considerably more” than the £250,000 they paid the Saints in January 2018.
Given Morgan has largely flattered to deceive in the green and white hoops, it seems as though many Celtic fans aren’t too upset about the prospect of his departure for sunnier climes combined with a neat little windfall:
Good move for Lewis Morgan if the deal to Inter Miami goes through. Nothing against the boy but never a Celtic player in his puff.— Kieran (@Kieran_Celtic) 9 January 2020
The idea of Lewis Morgan and David Silva playing in the same midfield together is absolutely frying my brain— michael. ⛵️ (@VLR) 9 January 2020
Seriously hope that Lewis Morgan rumour is true, some move for him if it happens plus we get money oot it, hope he does well but he’s never a Celtic player in a million years— Chris Gunn (@Gunnie67) 9 January 2020
