Coventry City have signed Middlesbrough midfielder Bryn Morris on a season-long loan.
Morris, 19, is no stranger to Sky Blues boss Tony Mowbray as it was Mowbray who gave the England Under 19 captain his Boro debut at the age of 16.
A central midfielder, who can also play at centre back has represented England at Under 16, 17, 18 & 19 levels, captaining each team.
Last season, Morris made five appearances for League Two Champions Burton Albion and is now looking to gain more first team experience with The Sky Blues.
“I’ve had a frustrating time with my injury lately so I’m just glad to get back focussing on the football and I’m delighted to be here,” Morris said.
“It was a stress fracture on my back probably most frustrating injury I’ve had, but that’s behind me and I can’t wait to get started.
“When I was 16, the manager had the faith in me then so I’m glad to be back working with him.
“Playing for England gives you confidence and playing with the best players helps to improve you.
“I was at Burton for a month and while I didn’t play in my favoured position I still enjoyed the experience. I played on the wing but I prefer a central role and like to go box-to-box. Either way, I’ll play where I’m told to, but the way Tony Mowbray spoke to me about it I’m really excited to kick on. I want to try and make my claim here and continue improving.”
Morris is the second England youth international to join The Sky Blues on loan following Adam Armstrong’s move from Newcastle United last week.
