According to a report from The Scottish Sun, recently relegated Championship club Sunderland are considering a move for Celtic winger Lewis Morgan in the summer transfer window.
The report from the British tabloid claimed that the new Sunderland boss Jack Ross is keen to recruit the services of Morgan on a season-long loan deal from the Glasgow champions.
Morgan had worked under Ross before when he was at St Mirren. The winger joined Celtic from St Mirren back in the January transfer window for a reported fee of £300,000, as reported by the BBC, and he was immediately shipped out of the club on loan.
With Celtic boasting of world-class players in his positions, it’s hard seeing Morgan making it to the first-team fold at this stage.
However, Morgan is regarded as one of the best young players in Scotland presently, and joined Sunderland may not be seen as a good idea at this stage of his career, even on a loan deal.
Sunderland are playing in the League One next season after getting relegated from the Championship.
