LEWIS MORGAN is on Sunderland’s wish-list as his former St Mirren boss Jack Ross ponders a six-month loan deal.

The winger joined Celtic a year ago in a £300,000 switch, but was allowed to return to the Paisley outfit to help with their promotion push.

Morgan inspired the team en route to the Premiership, but Ross was lured to the English League One side following their second consecutive relegation.

The 22-year-old, who broke into Alex McLeish’s Scotland international plans in the summer as he arrived at Parkhead, has struggled for game-time with Brendan Rodgers’ men.

Morgan has made only 11 appearances – with 10 coming off the subs’ bench – and a reunion with Ross could be sanctioned by Celtic.

His Hoops team-mate Jack Hendry looks to be also heading out on loan to be allowed some much-needed first team appearances and he, too, has been linked with Sunderland.

The central defender, 22, who cost £1.3million from Dundee a year ago, hasn’t played since the 3-1 defeat against RB Salzburg in October and Portsmouth and Bradford City are also monitoring his situation.
