Morton commits future to City

Young midfielder James Morton has pledged his future to Bristol City, having signed a four-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months.

The midfielder will continue his development at Forest Green Rovers this season, who sit in fifth position in Sky Bet League Two.

Morton has made 10 appearances in his first two months, grabbing three assists and three man of the match awards.

The 20-year-old spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Bath, where he scored one goal and notched 12 assists in 50 appearances, en route to helping the Romans reach the Vanarama South play-offs.

City Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton said: “To secure James’ services for another four, potentially five years, is a big statement. He is a very talented young player who has so much potential and I know he is very highly thought of.

“He is a fine example of the incredibly talented youth players we have within our ranks and he is part of a very exciting future at this football club.”
