Former Scotland international Alan Hutton has had his say on Lewis Morgan’s potential move to Inter Miami.
The Daily Record claim Morgan is closing in on a £400,000 move to the MLS outfit this month, and has applied for a work permit to finalise the deal.
And speaking to Football Insider, Hutton revealed he can see why the move would appeal to Morgan but warned the 23-year-old of the importance of impressing in the MLS.
I see both sides, if I’m honest. I think it’d be amazing; a new opportunity, new franchise, David Beckham, everything that goes along with it, Miami is a great place.
I can see why you would want to leave but on the flip side, you’re only 23, do you really want to go there and where do you go after that? If it doesn’t quite work out there, what’s next from there?
He’s young, he’s hungry to try something else. I don’t think he’ll ever be a regular for Celtic, that’s the problem so I think that’s why it’s so appealing to him.
READ CELTIC VERDICT
While we understand where Hutton is coming from, Morgan’s move to the MLS is an excellent transfer for all involved from our point of view.
The winger has completed 90 minutes on just four occasions during his two year stint at Celtic, emphasising how he has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular.
Therefore selling him makes sense from Celtic’s perspective, and it also allows Morgan to join a club who are likely to give him consistent game time, given how the Daily Record reveal the winger has agreed to a “lucrative” contract.
