Academy graduate extends Carrow Road stay

CARLTON Morris wants to 'repay the faith' shown in him by Norwich City after penning a new contract with the Club until the summer of 2020.

The City Academy graduate made his first team debut against Wigan Athletic in March 2015, and impressed last season during a loan spell with Scottish Premiership outfit Hamilton Academical.

Having played alongside the likes of Jacob and Josh Murphy in City's FA Youth Cup triumph in 2013, Morris is aiming to eventually replicate the progress of the twins into the Norwich first team.

"They're good friends of mine and it gives all the young lads a massive boost to see them doing well," he exclusively told

"We've played in the same teams growing up so it shows that we can do what they're doing now. I want to repay the faith shown in me now and do good things for the club going forward.

"I've been here since I was ten so hopefully I can have a positive impact on the club's future. I'm buzzing because I can now focus on my future here at Norwich."

Morris is currently on loan to fellow Sky Bet Championship side Rotherham United, although his Millers bow has been delayed by a minor hamstring issue picked up while representing City's Under-23s. 

"I'm getting towards the end of my recovery but you can't really risk anything with hamstring injuries," the 21-year-old explained.

"I don't want to go there and redo it or anything so it's important I go there firing on all cylinders. I'm going there with the mentality that I'm going to enjoy it and hopefully help them get some positive results.

"They're playing a few teams who are around Norwich in the table. Hopefully I can go and do some damage to those teams for us, as well as for myself and Rotherham.

"I'm looking to get fully fit and finish the season strongly to take me into the next one."
