Former Norwich City striker Steve Morison has been named the new lead coach for Cardiff City’s under-23 side.

Morison, who won 20 caps for Wales, takes charge with coach Tom Ramasut, who has been part of the Bluebirds' academy set-up for seven years.

Morison, a UEFA pro-licence coach, spent time with Northampton and Millwall's academy since ending his playing career at the end of last year.

"I'm delighted to announce Steve as the club's Lead U23s Coach and wish him and Tom the very best in their new roles," said Cardiff City executive director and CEO Ken Choo.

"I'd like to welcome Steve to our club and look forward to working with him and Tom as we seek to pave a clear and attainable pathway for young players towards first team football."

Morison made 59 appearances for the Canaries between 2011 and 2013, scoring 10 goals in his first season after arriving for around £2.8m from Millwall.
