Morrell agrees move to Kenilworth Road

Bristol City would like to wish Joe Morrell the best of luck as he completes a permanent switch to Luton Town.

The 23-year-old joins the Sky Bet Championship outfit for an undisclosed fee.

Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton said: “Joe is a fantastic person both on and off the pitch, he has been a great role model for youngsters coming through the Academy. He has broken into the Wales squad and needs regular game time, which he will get at Luton. We wish him well.”

Head Coach Dean Holden added: “Joe is a true professional and he has come on leaps and bounds in recent seasons. He has been a pleasure to work with.

“He deserves to be involved in competitive football at a high level week in, week out and this is a positive move for him. We’ve had open and honest conversations since my appointment and he felt this was something he wanted to pursue. He goes with our best wishes.”

Morrell, who progressed through the club’s Academy system made his City debut at the age of 16 in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy against Wycombe Wanderers.

His second appearance for his boyhood club came just shy of four years later in 2017 when he featured in a 5-0 win over Plymouth Argyle in the Carabao Cup, before he produced an impressive league debut against Ipswich Town in 2018.

During his time in BS3, Morrell has had loan spells at Sutton United, Margate and most notably Cheltenham Town and Lincoln City, while cementing his place in the Wales squad.

In total Morrell featured six times for the Robins.

Everyone connected with the club would like to thank Joe for his commitment and effort and we wish him luck for the future.
