Celtic’s Lewis Morgan appears to be on the move to Inter Miami. The winger would be a key addition ahead of the 2020 season.
Inter Miami’s inaugural season is right around the corner and the expansion club are continuing to build their roster in January.
Since his arrival at the Scottish Premiership club, he’s struggled to break through as a mainstay in the lineup and is now seemingly ready to find regular football elsewhere. Step up, Inter Miami.
The Scotland international attracted attention during the 2017/18 season when he scored 14 goals in 35 appearances for St. Mirren in the Scottish second division. However, he would not get to feature for Celtic the following season as he ended up on loan at Sunderland where he made 22 appearances during the 2018/19 season.

This year, Morgan has not been given regular playing time and it appears he won’t be a consistent feature in the starting XI anytime soon. Just three appearances have come since November in the Scottish Premier League for Morgan. He did play in the Scottish Cup final as Celtic defeated Rangers 1-0 in December, which is his most notable appearance thus far in the 2019/2020 campaign.
As a result of the low appearances, Miami’s interest comes at a perfect time in Morgan’s season where he can go to another club and still make an impact. The Scottish winger should find himself as a regular starter for Miami under new manager Diego Alonso.
Not only will Miami be bringing in a player from a big club loaded with talent, but they will also be getting a player who has many years ahead of him in his career. This is a player who the club could count on to be a feature in the seasons to come and not just a one-season wonder. For this reason, Morgan is going to be a key piece of the roster-building puzzle.
The 23-year-old winger has the ability to be a dangerous player in MLS and might find himself on the scoresheet a couple of times in 2020. This is another great signing by David Beckham and the Miami front office if it comes to fruition.
