Sheffield United and Reading consider move for Inter Miami star Morgan

Sheffield United and Reading consider move for Inter Miami star Lewis Morgan after superb start to life at David Beckham’s MLS franchise… and Scot could leave for £2m

  • Winger Lewis Morgan is Inter Miami’s top scorer in the MLS so far this season
  • The Scot was signed from Celtic a year ago for the club’s first ever campaign 
  • Sheffield United and Reading are among a host of clubs interested in him 
  • Morgan is a crucial player for Miami but they could let him leave for around £2m

Inter Miami’s Scottish winger Lewis Morgan is being monitored by Premier League strugglers Sheffield United and Championship side Reading.

The 24-year-old former Celtic prospect has also been attracting attention from French sides Bordeaux, Marseille, Nice and Rennes after a string of impressive displays in the MLS where he has been Miami’s most valuable player.

His signing was initially considered a low key addition alongside more illustrious names such as Blaise Matuidi, Gonzalo Higuain and Mexican Rodolfo Pizarro but Morgan has more than proved his worth for coach Diego Alonso.

The winger joined from Celtic last January and is already the new club’s top scorer this term 

Morgan, who has been capped twice by Scotland, has started every game for David Beckham’s Miami, is their top scorer with five goals and has delivered the most assists with eight. 

His unselfish pressing and workrate has also earned plaudits.

Consistently topping the statistics table in the MLS, he has also been watched by scouts from Nottingham Forest who were keen to sign him while he was at Celtic.

He has two years left on contract and, while Miami would be loath to lose him, the MLS side would likely consider a fee in the region of £2million.
