LEWIS MORGAN is awaiting a work visa after agreeing a three-year deal with David Beckham’s Inter Miami.

Celtic have accepted a bid of around £400,000 for the Scotland international winger and the new Major League Soccer club applied for a permit yesterday, according to the Daily Record.

The relevant paperwork is expected to be completed within the next week and, as soon as he is given clearance, the 23-year-old forward will head to the Sates to start his new career.

Morgan hopes to be in place when his latest club kick off against FC Dallas in their first match next month.

The talented wide-man was signed by Brendan Rodgers from St Mirren for £250,000 in January 2019 before being loaned back to the Paisley outfit to help with their successful promotion drive.

He also had a temporary stint at English League One side Sunderland where he teamed up again with his former Saints gaffer Jack Ross. There was speculation the manager might make an effort this month to entice Morgan to Hibs where he has taken over from the sacked Paul Heckingbottom.

The player, though, has been reported as favouring a permanent switch and will not head for Miami.

Morgan made 31 appearances in total for the Hoops and scored two goals, both coming in Europe this season.

He will be the second player to quit the champions in this transfer window with Scott Sinclair joining Championship outfit Preston last week.
