The striker pens a loan deal for 2020/21

Carlton Morris admitted he jumped at the chance to return to Stadium MK for the 2020/21 season as he became the first summer signing for MK Dons.

The 24-year-old struck twice in 10 games during his loan spell from Norwich City last season, helping Dons to edge themselves away from the relegation zone during January and February.

Hugely popular amongst the squad and the fan base, Morris said he was pleased to return to the club and hopes to continue the work he and the team were doing prior to the curtailed season last time out.

“I’m very happy to be back,” the 24-year-old told iFollow MK Dons over Zoom. “As soon as I heard the club were interested in extending the loan, it was an easy decision to make.

“It was very unfortunate that the season was cut short because since joining January I was having a great time. I got on well with the lads in the dressing and felt a real connection with the fans and the football club in general.

“This is a club really on the up under the gaffer and with the squad that we’ve got. it’s an exciting time to be part of things and we’ll be looking as high as we can next season.

“For me, last season was, at times, just about getting through the games after coming back from a long-term injury. I’m feeling great and I’m looking forward to kicking on next season.”
