As reported by The Scottish Sun, Sunderland boss Jack Ross has made an official move to sign Celtic winger Lewis Morgan on loan next season, despite the player having not yet kicked a ball for the Hoops.
Celtic signed the winger in January, but he continued on at St Mirren to help their promotion bid under Jack Ross. Now his former manager wants a reunion in English League 1.
The paper say that the Hoops have told Sunderland that it will be mid-July until they make a decision on Morgan’s future.
The Scotland international showed incredible form for the Buddies last term, scoring 18 goals and assisting 13 times in all competitions and winning the division’s player of the year award.
Celtic fans are now eager to see him get a chance in the first team and don’t want him to be sent out on loan, believing he has the ability to make an impact ahead of the likes of Scott Sinclair.
They’ve taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on a potential switch…
Would happily sell Ryan Christie to Sunderland permanently rather than give them Lewis Morgan on loan.

No to this. I think Morgan can make wide left his position for Celtic. Ahead of Sinclair. Give them Kouassi on loan instead

There's a story in the papers that Jack Ross wants to take Lewis Morgan to Sunderland on loan. I hope someone at @CelticFC knocks that on the head, not least because Ross will be out of a job by Christmas, or even sooner.

Seen a few posts about Lewis Morgan going on loan to Sunderland, if true that's pretty poor a think, would have like him in and around the first team sqaud.

Very much looking forward to seeing young Morgan in the hoops. Was impressed anytime I saw him play for st mirren. Deserves game time to show Brendan what he’s got

Saints fans I know raved about him. Two footed winger. Not many around and hopefully good enough to get in the team as too many fringe players haven’t stepped up
