LEWIS MORGAN is on the verge of agreeing terms in a £300,000 switch to David Beckham’s Inter Miami.

It is understood the Celtic and Scotland winger has accepted terms with the new MLS outfit.

The 23-year-old forward, who has had loan spells with St Mirren and Sunderland in recent seasons, has made 18 appearances for Neil Lennon’s side this campaign and scored twice – with both goals coming in the Europa League.

Beckham’s Miami club, managed by 44-year-old Diego Alonso, play their first game against FC Dallas on February 22 and are confident of having the attacker on board by then.

Morgan is keen to play more regularly and has been convinced that a move to MLS will be beneficial for his career.

He played for an hour of the Hoops’ 1-0 Betfred League Cup Final success over Rangers last month, but has failed to hold down a permanent first-team place since his £250,000 arrival from the Paisley Saints.

MATTY KENNEDY’S expected move from St Johnstone to Aberdeen could be hi-jacked by Hearts.

Tynecastle head of recruitment John Murray and former coach Austin MacPhee have put forward the Perth star’s name to new boss Daniel Stendel as a target this month, according to the Scottish Sun.

Kennedy, who recently won a call-up to the Northern Ireland squad, looked to be on the brink of agreeing a pre-contract with the Dons.

However, the Edinburgh side could attempt to pay cash to get the move sealed this month as they battle to beat the drop.

JOSH McPAKE has returned to Rangers following the end of his Dundee loan deal.

The 18-year-old winger joined the Championship side in August and made seven appearances for the Tayside outfit.

The Dens club told the Courier: “We would like to thank Josh for his efforts while at the club and wish him all the best for the future.”

CHRIS CADDEN is still at the centre of a transfer fee wrangle at Motherwell.

Fir Park chief executive Alan Burrows insisted FIFA, football’s world governing body, are now set to intervene in the club’s compensation dispute with MLS side Colombus Crew over the winger.

The Lanarkshire club are demanding around £200,000 for the Scotland international, who moved Stateside last summer before immediately agreeing a loan switch to English side Oxford United.
