CELTIC’s Lewis Morgan is wanted by Hibernian who would like to take him on loan until the end of the season.

Neil Lennon is a fan of the 22-year-old and the Easter Road club have made an approach for a player who has hardly got any game-time this season since his move from St Mirren.

Morgan has also been linked with Sunderland but he may take a leaf out of Ryan Christie’s book and opt to stay in Scottish football and hope to impress Brendan Rodgers with good performances in the Premiership.

Lennon is desperate to add to his depleted squad and Ryan Gauld is due to arrive in Dubai this week, where the Hibs team are at their warm weather winter training camp.

The Hibs manager said: “We’re hoping to get Gauld in. Nothing’s confirmed yet but we’re hoping to get that one over the line and we’re beavering away. . I liked him at Dundee United. I’ll talk more about him if we can get him in. But I like his style of play

“We have young Tom (Glover) in and we’re having a good look at him this week, a good young goalkeeper from Spurs.

“And the top end of the pitch is the priority for me. With Martin Boyle being out now for whatever length of time we’re going to need another attacking player in with pace. That’s a must because we’ve lacked pace this season with Boyle being in and out and Brandon Barker leaving.

“That injection of pace is really important for the way we want to play. Do I have to change the way I want to play the game? Well I don’t really want to do that we have to go and find the right type of players that we want to use.”

"Efe Ambrose has left, Boyle could be out for three months with a hamstring problem which leaves Hibs seriously short.

Lennon said: “We are undercooked, really undercooked, so we want to get some bodies in. Obviously it’s an ideal opportunity to do that with the window being open.

"We have lost Efe and he is a big loss to us he was probably our best player in the first half of the season. We have got a lot of work to do. We need to get some bodies in.

“I don’t think we should have to be digging as deep as we are. When you lose what we’ve lost it’s impossible to replace in one window. So we will have to do some good work in this one and try to cover the ground.”
