The 18-year-old, who was a key figure in the 2013 FA Youth Cup success under Neil Adams, will link up with Michael Appleton’s squad at the Kassam Stadium until the New Year and is available for this weekend’s opening league game against Burton Albion.

Morris featured in last week’s 5-1 friendly win for the Canaries over OGC Nice at Carrow Road in his first senior experience and signed a two-and-a-half year professional contract in December 2013 after his accelerated progress through the club’s academy ranks.

  • Agree Brew! Totally agree. A certain Grant Holt speaks very highly of Morris as well, so that is enough for me ;) Just wish he was getting a full season loan somewhere.

  • He was outstanding in that Youth Cup success. They all were. Specially beating Chelsea as they did...

  • Great news as ive been critical of the club in recent seasons for not allowing the youth of our fine club, time away to gain experience. All I will say though, is what exactly is the difference between a "youth loan" and a normal loan. Is it just so he can play with their academey and not the 1st team as that wont benefit anyone. I'd love to see Carlton go out on a full season loan somewhere. A bit like Darren Huckerby explained recently. It will do far more good going away for a full year (similar to Declan Rudd last year) and becoming a man so to speak. The loans Jamar Loza kept going out on last season cant help a great deal as by the time you settle, get use to your team mates and work your way into the side, its time to come back to norwich again and play youth football. Hopefully Carlton gets in immediately and makes an impact. Heard so many people speaking so highly of him.

  • More than good enough for league 2, will be a confidence builder and add to his experience. Well done young man!

  • Morning Brew. Saw Carlton v Forest & Chelsea and he looked class. He knows his job, is strong and has that little gift of staying onside. Give my regards to Mr Downes next time you see him:)

  • Good move. Perhaps, if that works out well, he can be moved up a League for another spell? It would be great to see another Academy player make it, now that Josh is nearly there, with Jacob, and Jamar Loza, not too far behind.
