Deal all but done: Celtic ace finalises exit for 6-figure fee as documents submitted - Sources
Lewis Morgan is finalising his exit from Celtic today as the paperwork on his transfer to MLS club Inter Miami is completed, Football Insider understands.
The versatile forward, 23, has agreed the terms of a three-year contract with David Beckham’s side after the Hoops accepted a bid of around £300,000 for him.
A Celtic source has told Football Insider that the deal is all but done and Morgan is now awaiting clearance to join his new teammates in the United States.
All the necessary documents have been submitted and the Scotland international is set to secure a work permit before heading across the Atlantic.
He will become the second senior Celtic attacker to leave the club this month after Scott Sinclair joined Preston North End last week.

Morgan had been a regular for Celtic over the last two months and was a surprise choice to spearhead the attack during Odsonne Edouard’s absence through injury in late November and early December.
He scored in the 3-1 Europa League home win over Stade Rennais and also started the League Cup final win over Rangers at Hampden.
It will bring an end to Morgan’s two-year spell at Celtic, which began when he signed from St Mirren for £300,000 in January 2018.
He has played 31 times in total for the Scottish champions, 18 of which have come in the current campaign.
