Morrell starred on loan with Lincoln City last season but has not been in the first-team picture since returning to Ashton Gate. The Wales international has played six times for Bristol City’s senior side, picking up most of his experience out on loan.

The 23-year-old provided four assists in 32 games with Lincoln City last season and scored three goals and laid on three assists in 39 games for Cheltenham Town in the 2017/18 season. Morrell has also picked up five international caps for Wales’ senior side since making his debut in September 2019.
