Celtic winger Lewis Morgan could be on his way out of the club this month amid interest from a new Major League Soccer outfit.
On Thursday, the Daily Mail reported that David Beckham’s club Inter Miami had requested permission to speak to the Hoops about the possible signing of the 23-year-old, as noted by @celticbible on Twitter.

STV subsequently reported that the Scottish champions have accepted a six-figure bid from the Florida-based club for Morgan, who has left Celtic’s mid-season training camp in Dubai to discuss the potential move to USA with his family. According to STV, the bid tabled by Inter Miami is significantly higher than the £250,000 Celtic paid to St Mirren to sign him two years ago.
Morgan has failed to make much of an impact at Parkhead, with just two goals in 31 appearances since joining the Hoops in January 2018, while he was loaned out to Sunderland for the second half of last season. These Celtic fans on Twitter are hoping that the club will part ways with the 23-year-old this month:

Do you think Celtic should sell Morgan to Inter Miami or does he still deserve a chance at Parkhead? Comment below with your views!
