Norwich City's highly-rated striker Carlton Morris has completed a youth loan to League Two Oxford United until January 1.

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.
