Inter Miami CF signed Scottish winger Lewis Morgan on an undisclosed fee from Scottish Premiership team Celtic FC, the club announced Friday.

Morgan, 23, will take up an international roster slot and will join Inter Miami pending the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and P-1 Visa.

Morgan made his first appearance for Celtic in the early stages of the UEFA Champions League in 2018, which came against Alashkert Yerevan. He made 31 appearances for Celtic, including seven in the Champions League and eight in UEFA Europa League. Morgan scored two goals in the Europa League and tallied two assists in the Champions League. 

“Lewis is an exciting player that will contribute to our attack,” Inter Miami CF sporting director Paul McDonough said in a statement released by the club. “He is a pacey and dynamic player who operates well in space. He has shown his quality in Scotland and in England and we’re happy to acquire him.”

Morgan spent the second half of the 2018-19 season on loan at Sunderland AFC. He played in 22 matches for Sunderland, recording two goals and four assists and helped the club reach the EFL Trophy final. Morgan started the match and came off as a substitute in the 73rd minute as Portsmouth defeated Sunderland 5-4 on penalties after the match ended 2-2 in extra time. 

Morgan earned his first cap for the Scottish national team in 2018 in a friendly against Peru.

Inter Miami has been busy filling out its roster this week. 

The club traded for Columbus Crew captain Wil Trapp on Friday and signed Argentinian centerback Nicolás Figal on Thursday. 

Inter Miami begins its first MLS season with a road game March 1 against LAFC. The club’s first home match of the season will be March 14 against the LA Galaxy.
