Young midfielder signs deal until the end of the seasonShrewsbury Town have completed the signing of Bryn Morris on permanent deal from Middlesbrough until the end of the season.
The 20 year old becomes Paul Hurst’s fifth signing of the January transfer window.
Morris is an England youth international and has already enjoyed loan spells with Burton Albion, Coventry City and Walsall in his young career.
Morris is a central midfielder and he is delighted to have got the deal done.
“It’s all happened really quickly, but I just can’t wait to get started”, Bryn told ShrewsWeb.
“I’ve been saying for a while that I need to get myself back into first team football. I’ve played here and there, but hopefully I will come here and start myself back up again and it will lead to good things. I know the Midlands well from my previous loans and I think they can only stand me in good stead for different things in my career.
“I’ve come from a good background at Middlesbrough, they like to play football the right way and I’ve had spells with England which is good for the CV, but I think the biggest thing for me is getting first team games in league football, so I’m looking forward to it.”
Bryn sees himself as a box to box midfielder and he believes Shrewsbury’s style of play should suit his own.
“Having played against Shrewsbury I know a little bit about it and the way that you play”, said Morris.
“I’ve played here with England as well and it’s a good surface, which is good for my style of play and trying to play good football. I can play defensive midfield or in a more attacking role. I think I’ve got a good engine, so I’m a bit of a box to box player, but I will do anything that I’m asked of.
“I just can’t wait to get started really. I’ve only got one training session and then the game so that should be good. Hopefully I will get my opportunity on Saturday and just do my best and hopefully play well and get off to a good start.”
The paperwork is still waiting to be cleared.
