Celtic winger Lewis Morgan has been given permission to speak to Inter Miami and complete a move to David Beckham's franchise club in the MLS.

A fee has been agreed with Celtic for Morgan, who still has 18 months left on his contract.

He has left Celtic's training camp in Dubai and is expected to fly to the United States later on Friday.

The 23-year-old joined Celtic in January 2018 before being loaned back to St Mirren for the remainder of that campaign.

Morgan made his Celtic debut in August 2018 but spent the second half of last season on loan at Sunderland where he scored two goals in 22 appearances.

He has played 18 times for Celtic this season but is now set for a move to the US and could potentially be a part of Miami's MLS debut against Los Angeles FC on March 1.

Inter Miami appointed Uruguayan Diego Alonso as their first head coach last month.
