Celtic winger Lewis Morgan has been given permission to speak with MLS club Inter Miami about a switch to the United States, according to multiple reports in the Scottish media.
It is believed that the Hoops could sell the 23-year-old for considerably more than the £250,000 they paid St Mirren for the player two years ago.
Fans on Twitter think the sale of Morgan could be a good piece of business for the club:
Great business if confirmed. Never a Celtic player, but a good player for another club.

It's a shame it didn't work out for the boy.

He was a punt, it didn't work out, good luck to the bhoy but he never looked good enough.

Good move for us and him. We shouldn’t have him signed for Celtic in the first place. Terrible signing. Hammond does his favour for us. Best of luck for Lewis!

Morgan has had an odd career at Celtic. Initially being loaned back to St Mirren, he then found first-team opportunities hard to come by last season before being loaned out to English League One side Sunderland for the second half of the campaign.
On his return to Parkhead, manager Neil Lennon did offer him more game time, with some starts coming in an unfamiliar no.9 role. He has actually played 18 times this season, scoring two goals and contributing three assists.
Still, supporters have been far from convinced that he has the quality to play for Celtic and his likely departure has not come as a surprise.
