Shrewsbury Town have signed Carlton Morris from Norwich City on loan for the season as confirmed by the club website.

The 21-year-old striker came through the Norwich academy and has been able to win several honours while playing for their youth team, causing several people to tip Morris for future greatness. However his last loan spell with Rotherham United didn’t go well, struggling to get into their first team and never scoring in the few chances he did get. This obviously wasn’t enough to get him into the Norwich first team on his return but he now has another loan spell to prove himself.

Now he has a season-long loan deal with Shrewsbury to prove himself where he should be able to get into the first team and show why so many believe he could be a great striker in the future. He is yet to score in an EFL fixture yet despite having spells in the past with Oxford United and York City, so Morris has a lot to prove now that he is at the Greenhous Meadow.

Following his move, Morris said: “I’m at a point in my career where I need to get games, get goals and really kick-on”,

“I see a club that are having a real go this season and hopefully we can come together and have a successful this season.”

“I like the manager’s philosophy and I’ve heard good things about the Town, the area and the football club from colleagues at Norwich.”

“When I first heard about the interest I had a word with Ebou (Adams) and he sung the praises of the club since he’s started here and about how quickly he’s settled in, so it wasn’t a hard decision in the end.”
