Birmingham City transfer target Lewis Morgan was hugely impressive for Scotland Under-21s against England despite Scot Gemmill’s side falling to a 3-1 defeat in their UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying match at The Riverside Stadium.

The 21-year-old Greenock born midfielder has been linked with a move to St Andrews in January as reported by The72 earlier this week with his contract at current club St Mirren set to expire at the end of the current campaign,

Glasgow giants Celtic and Rangers are also said to be monitoring the situation and are both likely to make moves for the player during the upcoming transfer window.

On Friday evening, Morgan was in action for his country at under-21 level. Scotland were comfortably beaten by England and rarely threatened home keeper Angus Gunn’s goal however it was Morgan who was arguably his side’s best player throughout the match.

The youngster looked assured on the ball and was full of confidence and despite his side’s defeat, Morgan looked more than comfortable playing on the same field as some of the brightest young players in European football.

It is unknown whether scouts from Birmingham City will have attended the match at The Riverside Stadium however if officials from the Sky Bet Championship club had watched the match, the player would surely be given a glowing reference.
