Norwich City striker Carlton Morris is the latest of the club's young brigade to sign a new Carrow Road deal.

The 19-year-old, who joined Scottish Premiership side Hamilton on loan until January 1 earlier this week, will remain at his parent club until the summer of 2017.

Morris has had loan spells at Oxford and York and made his senior Norwich debut as a substitute in last season's Championship home defeat to Wigan.

City boss Alex Neil, speaking after Tuesday's friendly win at Hitchin, is backing Morris to impress at his old club.

'Carlton has been out a couple of times in England and it has not really worked for him,' he said. 'He hasn't had a lot of game-time and the stage he is at, at the minute he needs first team football. I think Hamilton is a great platform for him to go and play in the top flight in Scotland and go to some good stadiums and experience playing for a living.

A lot of the academy kids don't play for a living. If they don't win on a Saturday it doesn't really have a big impact on them. There is a huge difference between senior and academy.'

Morris' development squad team mate Remi Matthews also extended his Carrow Road contract earlier this week.
