CELTIC winger Lewis Morgan is on Hibs boss Neil Lennon’s wanted list.

And the Easter Road gaffer is also keeping tabs on Hoops midfielder Scott Allan who hasn’t figured for Brendan Rodgers’ team since he returned to Parkhead after his successful six-month loan period in Edinburgh last season.

Hibs have already made an approach to the champions for 22-year-old Scotland international Morgan who joined the Glasgow outfit in a £300,000 switch from St Mirren a year ago before immediately going back on a temporary basis to the Paisley side to help with their promotion bid.

Lennon is searching for reinforcements after it was revealed he could lose Martin Boyle for eight to 12 weeks following the Australian’s knee injury playing for his nation in an Asian Cup warm-up match against Oman.

ON THE MOVE…Hibs target Lewis Morgan takes on Kilmarnock’s Jordan Jones who has agreed a pre-contract with Rangers.

Sunderland manager Jack Ross is also keen to take his ex-Saints star Morgan to the League One club until the end of the season.

Former Dundee United playmaker Ryan Gauld is already set to arrive on loan from Sporting Lisbon at the club’s Dubai training camp in the next 48 hours.

Weakened already by the loss of defender Efe Ambrose after the Nigerian exercised an option to leave the club this month, Lennon expects Gauld to undergo a medical in the coming days while Spurs keeper Tom Glover is on trial.
