Cambridge-born Morris said: "I am over the moon.

"There were a few clubs interested in me but this was the most attractive option for me for various reasons - the team plays an attractive brand of football under the new manager and I know a few people here too.

"Me and Russ have been close for years. He was very helpful to me as a young pro coming through at Norwich.

"I have always appreciated that and now I have the opportunity to work under him – it was an opportunity I did not want to pass up on.

"The team has gone to strength to strength with some good results recently and I think this is a good place to be."
