Sunderland wants Celtic winger Lewis Morgan to join them on a season-long loan, according to the Scottish Sun.
Celtic are likely to send the 21-year-old out on loan next season to garner more first-team experience and Sunderland is a potential destination for him
The new Sunderland boss, Jack Ross, has had a previous working experience with Morgan during their spell at St. Mirren together. He found the net 18 times across all competitions for St. Mirren on loan this season and was an integral part of Ross’ side who won the Scottish Championship title.
Lewis Morgan began his career at Rangers but was given the chance to leave them to join St. Mirren in 2013. He broke into their first-team in the 2014-15 season but he could not help them avoid relegation in 2015 but he became their key man in the Scottish Championship.
He netted 10 goals in the 2016-17 campaign and scored 13 goals before January this season. He joined Scottish Premier League champions Celtic on a four-and-a-half-year deal but was instantly sent back out on loan to St. Mirren for the remainder of the season.
Morgan then found the net another five times for the remainder of his loan spell from Celtic and won the Scottish Championship winners medal. He also made his Scotland senior team debut last Tuesday in their game against Peru.
Jack Ross is now intent on reuniting with Morgan at Sunderland and wants him to reinforce his squad as he looks to get Sunderland back to the Championship and Morgan would likely jump at the opportunity to play English football.
