The Easter Road side have been linked with the 22-year-old since the beginning of the January transfer window.

It is believed that manager Neil Lennon is looking to add options in the wide areas with Manchester City loanee Thomas Agyepong having struggled with injuries since his move in the summer window.

Aberdeen have reportedly joined the chase for Morgan, while there is one destination Rodgers has already ruled out.

Rodgers said: “We’ve spoken about the idea of going on loan but he has a number of possibilities. He loved his time at St Mirren and it’s nothing against the club or manager. But speaking to him and his agent, if he moves out then it will be somewhere different.

“I haven’t heard anything from Hibs. There is quite a bit of interest around him. We’ll see where he ends up. He might even end up staying put. He’s a good boy who has been unfortunate here. The players who are in his position have played well and been consistently available. He is at the age where he needs to get games into his legs again.”
