Lewis Morgan is a work permit away from becoming an Inter Miami player.

The winger is in Florida to complete one of the most unlikely transfer deals involving a Celtic player.

Midway through Celtic’s training camp in Dubai it emerged that David Beckham’s club wanted Morgan as part of their launch into Major League Soccer which arrives next month.

After two half seasons his move from St Mirren to Celtic hasn’t really worked out but in a deal that seems to have every party happy a new chapter is awaiting in the USA.

The Daily Record reports:

Lewis Morgan has now agreed terms on a three-year deal with Inter Miami. The Major League Soccer new boys applied for a work visa for the Scotland star on Monday.

He will finalise his £400,000 move from Celtic as soon as the relevant paperwork is completed. The 23-year-old will join his new team mates as soon as he is given clearance. Inter Miami – who are part owned by David Beckham– kick-off against FC Dallas in their first match in February.

Neil Lennon is still looking to trim his squad but there seems to be a lack of interest in players such as Jack Hendry and Eboue Kouassi.

Leigh Griffiths has also been linked with a loan move which looks more likely with Patryk kImala about to join as deputy to Odsonne Edouard.

Neil Lennon will give an update on injuries and transfers on Friday ahead of the Scottish Cup tie against Partick Thistle.
